Farewell to a Dancing Great

The remarkable Fayard Nicholas of the Nicholas Brothers has passed away at age 91.

Nicholas recently completed a commentary track for the Fox Classics release of ORCHESTRA WIVES.

STORMY WEATHER, which also features the Nicholas Brothers, was released on DVD earlier this month. Other new DVD releases, HALLELUJAH and GREEN PASTURES, contain early Nicholas Brothers shorts.

Other great Nicholas Brothers appearances include SUN VALLEY SERENADE and THE PIRATE.
