Plus these bonus selections...
MAMA DON'T ALLOW 1956
U.K. film. Documents the sights and sounds of Saturday night in a jazz club in Wood Green, North London. What you'll see: pompadours, pints of ale, tight sweaters, lindy and jive dancing. Priceless footage of 1950s UK teenagers and twenty-something's socializing and having a good time.
Shop girls and teddy boys. An awkward fancy-pants couple arrives via chauffeured limo to dig on the jumpin' jivin' festivities. An uptight "toff" won't dance with his girl. The Chris Barber Jazz Band fires on all cylinders and drives the crowd into a jivn' frenzy. A twisting, shaking, bouncing twirling, flailing, joyous good time.
YOUTH CLUB 1954
U.K. short film. Amusement halls loaded with pinball machines, blaring trade jazz, and huge clouds of cigarette smoke do not provide a setting for the development of decent contributing members of society. Britain's youth clubs however, keep kids out of trouble and produce fine, upstanding young citizens.
