I'd love to know what they're singing...

With Eddie's voice knowing is probably better than hearing.

Oh, that's no fair. I've always liked his singing in Cabin in the Sky (granted, he's no Ethel Waters or Lena Horne . . . or Louis Armstrong. But still . . . ).

Now that I think of it, these three were in Vincente Minnelli's first two films (though not at the same time). Depending on when the photo was taken, Anderson and Ellington might have been giving Skelton the lowdown on what he could expect.

I recently saw Man About Town with Jack Benny, and Anderson gets a couple of nice showcases. I wonder how many other films that feature his dancing need to be resurrected from the vaults.
