The Duke is Tops

This all-black musical stars Ralph Cooper and Lena Horne, in her earliest existing screen portrayal. Horne and Cooper are a performer/producer team that make a split when she gets her big break and heads off to the footlights of Broadway, with Cooper joining a medicine show. She flops...he returns...they make it to the top together. Hackneyed plot and poor dialogue, but some good music, including "I Know You Remember," sung by Horne.
