Correct title of film they appeared in.
Regarding the sentence: "Soon, Jimmy McPartland was part of Willie 'The Lion' Smith's band (along with Jimmy Archey, Pee Wee Russell, George 'Pops' Foster, and George Wettling), which won a Grammy for their soundtrack to the 1954 film After Hours."
I have the video here beside me. It includes two short films. He is in "Jazz Dance", with the players mentioned above. Included on the same Video tape is, "After Hours", but Mcpartland and the others are NOT in that. It includes Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge, and others.
The VHS tape is from Rhapsody Films. "Jazz Dance" is 22 min., made in B&W in 1954, directed by Roger Tilton. After Hours" is included on the same video tape, was made in 1961, is 27 min. long, and directed by Shepherd Traube. There is no mention on the box about a Grammy award.
