Hi All -

Here are Jimmy Cagney and Ruby Keeler performing a politically incorrect tap number entitled “Shanghai Lil.” The fact that Ms. Keeler is wearing silk pajamas does not make her Chinese, but Cagney and Keeler were pretty good hoofers.

FOOTLIGHT PARADE directed by Lloyd Bacon (1933 94 min.)
