1992 drama “Stompin’ at the Savoy” starring Lynn Whitfield, Vanessa L. Williams, Jasmine Guy, Mario Van Peeples, Debbie Allen, Michael Warren, Vanessa Bell Calloway and Darnell Williams.
As the Harlem Renaissance flourishes in jazzy New York City, Pauline (Vanessa Williams), Esther (Lynn Whitfield) and Alice (Jasmine Guy) struggle to survive. By day, they toil at dreary jobs, dreaming of stardom, riches and happiness. By night, they dance their troubles away at the famous Savoy Ballroom. But when World War II appears on the horizon, the girls find their fortunes unfolding too unevenly to reconcile, and they inevitably begin to drift apart.
