Besides being a top-notch arranger, bandleader and pianist, the Duke was also a restless, experimental artist by nature and a musician who never stopped recording from 1926 on. This video compiles different short and medium-length films starring the great Duke Ellington and his orchestra: Black And Tan (1929), Symphony In Black (1935 - featuring the famous sequence with Billie Holiday), plus assorted different musical sequences from other motion pictures, including the three scenes starring Mae West in the 1934 movie Belle Of The Nineties. A real must have. Time: 60.03 PAL/NTSC
