Ms. Lane Truesdale is on vocals and shimmy in this 1943 “soundie,” an early video jukebox format.

The title comes from a running joke on radio based on the name of violinist Yehudi Menuhin.

This video is now in the public domain.

Careful viewers will notice the video is reversed right-to-left, as the original format required a mirror for projection.
