Well, that was pretty fast work, I must say. The sage Ruprecht, he of enormous brain and foresight, was correct when he answered Friday's Puzzler. The question was: which movie featured a cameo by the wonderful Obba Babatunde (below) as a Cab Calloway - styled bandleader?
The answer was The Notebook.
Now, I did not watch the film through choice, but after repeated viewings I grew to like bits of it. Especially the scene with Obba.
Next question: Cab Calloway was no stranger to movies - in which movie did he appear as a character named Curtis?
