Louis Armstrong short subject MP4 download: Rhapsody in Black & Blue

The Jazz Legend Louis Armstrong stars in this musical short subject from 1932 (apparently these "mini-musicals" were quite popular all though the 30's).

The star of the short is a hen pecked husband who escapes into a Walter Mitty-esqe fantasy world where he's rubbing elbows with Louis Armstrong.

Runs approx 10 minutes

If you're a fan of it click here to check out "Rhapsodies in Black & Blue" on VHS (there's no DVD release) which includes this short as well as a bevy more mini-musicals. It's OOP but there are copies running as little as $14.43
