This very fun Marx Brothers film is considered among the 100 funniest films of all times. In it Whitey's Lindy Hoppers
dance to All God's Chillun Got Rhythm. Whitey himself
can be seen on the sidelines. He is identifiable by the streak
of white in his hair. 

This scene, like the Lindy Hop sequence in Hellzapoppin',
has no connection to the main plot of the movie, so that it
could be cut from the film when it was shown in the Deep
South and other segregated venues. The African-American
people in the dance scene are portrayed as innocent and
happy, a common stereotype of the time. The appearance
of the Marx brothers in blackface may be shocking to
modern audiences, but was meant to be no more than a
harmless disguise at the time the film was made.
