No Small Parts

Brandon Hardesty's [previously] web series, "No Small Parts," celebrates the careers of movie character actors. So far, we have five very touching short biographies of: Anne Ramsey (Throw Mama from the Train, Scrooged, The Goonies), Vincent Schiavelli (Ghost, Amadeus, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) Scatman Crothers (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Coonskin, The Shining), Warwick Davis (the Star Wars series, the Harry Potter series), and Michael Jeter (The Green Mile, Miller's Crossing, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas). Bring a hanky. These are love letters.

Hellzapoppin' Lindy Hoppin' - the Harlem Congaroos & Slim Gaillard, too

Slim Gaillard & Slam Stewart with The Harlem Congaroos is a clip from Hellzapoppin'.
Just as swingingly and athletically thereafter, The Congaroo Dancers, a Whitey's Lindy Hoppers joint, appeared in Duke Ellington and His Orchestra with the Congaroo Dancers - Hot Chocolate, also know as the Cottontail Soundie.
And, on a side note, Slim Gaillard & His Trio - Chile & Beans O'Vootee and Slim Gaillard & his Orooney Dunkers - Dunkin' Bagels O Voutie Rootie are from Slim Gaillard and his Trio - The Music Album aka O'Voutie O'Rooney. [more inside]
