Cab Calloway and Betty Boop in “The Old Man of the Mountain” (1933)

Cab was dynamic and magnetic in all of his appearances on screen (the man knew how to work a camera). His work with Fleischer on these animated shorts still haunts me. “The Old Man of the Mountain” is probably the least surreal of all of them and is a real showcase for Calloway’s singing. Enjoy it.
