My Response to the Tomato

No one was ever as cool as Cab Calloway. From the 1933 film, International House, with W.C. Fields, George Burns and Gracie Allen and, oddly enough, Bela Lugosi. Obviously this is pre-Code.

Ha! Cool response to my posting of the Betty Boop Minnie the Moocher. As it happens, the good woman and I own International House on DVD, watch it often over red wine and popcorn, and this Cab calloway bit is one of the funnest parts in the film. That and WC Fields dropping empty beer bottles out of his auto-gyro helicoptor yelling "Is this Kansas City Kansas or Kansas City Missouri?" while actually hovering somewhere over China.

Hi-de-Hi-de-ho!
