BILL “BOJANGLES” ROBINSON (c. 1935)

Vintage original 8 x 10 (20 x 25 cm.) silver gelatin double weight keybook print still photos, U.S. Before taking up residency at Twentieth Century Fox (where he became Shirley Temple’s dancing partner for a series of musicals), Bill “Bojangles” Robinson made a stop at Paramount to perform a specialty in what became THE BIG BROADCAST OF 1936. Very youthful at 57, Robinson had revolutionized the world of tap dancing with his technique.
