More swingin' goodness

My buddy Ken posted one of the best musical clips out on the web, so I think it's my bounden duty to do the same. Here are the same Andrews Sisters of blessed memory (plus Laverne, who's still alive and kicking at 92), along with Harry James of the Golden Lip, and the brilliant but underappreciated Shemp Howard, being quintessentially hilarious without his Stoogian brethren. I don't know how many people have ever actually seen this classic in film form, but within three notes you'll name that tune.

(I blogged the entire movie here. One of the best musical vehicles in the Internet Archive, and historically interesting as well. Sorry about the autoplay.)
