Fayard Nicholas (1914—2006) and Harold Nicholas (1921—2000) were two of the 20th century’s greatest dancers. These self-taught African-American brothers were still kids when they headlined at Harlem’s famed Cotton Club, later conquering Broadway and Hollywood—and eventually achieving international stardom—in a career that spanned eight decades. They dazzled audiences with their effortless balletic moves, elegant tap dancing, and jaw-dropping leaps, flips, and splits, counting among their fans the likes of Gregory Hines, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Bob Fosse, George Balanchine, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Paul Robeson, and Michael and Janet Jackson.

Bruce Goldstein, Film Forum’s director of repertory programming since 1986 and founder of Rialto Pictures in 1998, was the writer and co-producer of an award-winning 1992 documentary on the team, whom he first met in the early 1980s. In this world premiere of an all-new version of his acclaimed presentation on the dance team, Goldstein utilizes rare personal and performance footage, recordings, and vintage photographs, along with his never-before-seen 1991 interviews with the brothers and other legends, including Cab Calloway, Max Roach, Bobby Short, Leonard Reed, and Gregory and Maurice Hines. Edited by William Hohauser. Special thanks to Rigmor Newman Nicholas.
