Soundie: Sweet Sue, Just You – 1940s

This short, a swingy rendition of the classic jazz standard Sweet Sue, Just You, includes chorus lines, neat harmonies, and loads of tap dancing.

A Broadway-like number set to film, this short played in 1940s movie theaters between the Bugs Bunny cartoon and a B-movie.

A popular song composed in 1928 by Victor Young and Will J. Harris, Sweet Sue, Just You, has had impressive staying power, having been covered by Fats Waller, Django Reinhardt, The Mills Brothers, Bing Crosby, and Miles Davis.
