Harold and Fayard Nicholas
Being a HUGE fan of Dorothy Dandridge, my path was destined to cross with the phenomenal Nicholas Brothers, Fayard and Harold. Not only did the three work together, Dorothy was married to Harold (the younger brother) from 1942 to 1950. They had one child together, a daughter named Harolynn.
- I don’t know if I trust Hollywood to do a story on them with the respect they deserve. Past attempts by Hollywood to tell the stories of the great men and women from Old Hollywood have made me very skeptical. The sensationalism and “shock” approach kind of make me hope they never attempt to tell another story of my favorites!
- They could never find one actor to dance like Fayard or Harold… let alone two!
I would honestly settle for a great biography written about the brothers. I’d love it for my personal library – plus, I want the world to know these men.
They should be household names!
If you’re an author who happens to be reading these words… do us all a favor and give us the biography we need and The Nicholas Brothers deserve!
