The iconic film Stormy Weather (1943), [loosely based on Robinson's own life], follows a soldier coming home from war who wants to start a life as a performer. This 20th Century Fox production was one of the first nationally successful Hollywood films that featured an African-American cast. Stormy Weather was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry [Image: Bill Robinson, Lena Horne and Cab Calloway, 1943]
