Martha, Connie and Vet Boswell sing Crazy People in this clip from The Big Broadcast (1932). Billed as The Boswell Sisters, the family act from New Orleans was primarily a 1930s radio sensation, though they did appear in a few Hollywood musicals and short features. Though the trio’s style was wild, with unpredictable changes in key and tempo, they were always sharply in-sync. In performance, they often even moved in unison, as if they were a single body. Connie, who was wheelchair-bound due to a childhood bout with Polio, would change her name to Connee, and go on to a successful solo career career. Her style was a major influence on Ella Fitzgerald.
