In this 1941 film short Fats Waller and his band perform his song “Ain’t Misbehavin'” featuring singer Vivian Brown to a group of adoring young women.
In a relaxed environment surrounded the lovely ladies Fats hams it up for the camera with unsurpassed showmanship complete with trademark vocal introjection.
Among Waller’s best known songs “Ain’t Misbehavin'” was written in 1929 by Fats Waller and Harry Brooks with lyrics by Andy Razaf. It would later be prominently featured in the 1943 film “Stormy Weather”.
