Best 7-year-old boogie woogie ever

Here’s 7-year-old Frankie “Sugar Chile” Robinson in 1955’s No Leave, No Love with Van Johnson, Keenan Wynn and Marina Koshetz.   He’s playing his hit “Caldonia”.  Frankie was performing “Caldonia” at a 1946 gala when he belted out “How’m I Doin’, Mr President?” to Harry Truman, which became a catch phrase of the moment.

As a teenager, Robinson chose to return to school,  graduated from high school at 15 and then earned his college psychology degree.
