Where is the song Sweet Georgia Brown

2 posts in this topic

Can anyone explain  why the song Sweet Georgia Brown was not sung tapped or whistle in Cabin in the Sky. Lena's name is Georgia Brown???

Ethel Waters covered that song some years before this film.  Waters and Horne had professional "tensions" between them.  Maybe Waters had some claim on the song and didn't want it in the picture? She clearly couldn't be the singer in the film since she disliked Georgia Brown. However, if you think about it, she could have done a very acid-tongue rendition- "Fellers she can't get are fellers she ain't met..." but that wouldn't have been Petunia's style!
