Thursday Tunes--Whatcha Say

Today's tune is from the 1945 film "Pillow to Post", a wartime comedy starring Ida Lupino. Her character is working as a salesman for her father's oil company, and in order to get a room in one town, she ends up pretending to be a war bride. And as you can imgagine, much hilarity ensues in classic 40s screwball fashion. This scene features Louis Armstrong with Dorothy Dandridge singing a cute tune called "Whatcha Say". Wasn't Dorothy a doll? The dress she's wearing is a stunner too--what an unusual neckline!
