Bruce Goldstein presents a unique compilation tribute to the Nicholas Brothers, featuring a collage of rarely seen home movies, photographs and film clips.The Fabulous Nicholas Brothers, Fayard (1914-2006) and Harold (1921-2000), rank among the greatest dancers of the 20th century. Despite racial hurdles, the self-taught African-American entertainers became one of the biggest musical acts of their time, headlining on Broadway, radio and television and in vaudeville and nightclubs. Their dazzling, show-stopping numbers in movies such as Down Argentine Way, Sun Valley Serenade and Stormy Weather made them international icons. Known for effortless balletic moves, elegant tap dancing and perfect rhythms - along with a consummate grace and sly sense of humour - the Olympian brothers are in the end impossible to categorise. The dancer’s dancers, their fans have included Gene Kelly, who teamed up with them in The Pirate; Bob Fosse and Gregory Hines, whose first acts were modelled on them; ballet legends George Balanchine and Mikhail Baryshnikov; Michael Jackson, who once had Fayard as a dance coach; and Fred Astaire, who named their Stormy Weather ‘staircase’ number the greatest of all musical sequences.Bruce Goldstein is Director of Repertory Programming at Film Forum in New York – a legendary cinema programmer, writer and co-producer of a 1991 documentary on the brothers.DETAILS: 120mins approx.
