THE BUDDY DEANE SHOW 1950s & 1960s
U.S. documentary. "The Buddy Deane Scrapbook." Excellent quality. 4:3 aspect ratio. The Buddy Deane Show, immortalized by John Waters in his 1988 film, "Hairspray," was a teen dance show out of Baltimore, Maryland that ran from 1957 until 1964. The show was taken off the air because parent company Westinghouse Broadcasting would not allow home station WJZ to integrate black and white dancers.

Less than 10 minutes of original footage has survived but the production crew shot super-8, color movies of the proceedings. Look for awesome color footage of Bill Haley and the Comets, Chuck Berry, Jo-Ann Campbell, the Drifters, Frankie Avalon, Jack Scott, Danny and the Juniors, Tommy Sands, Bobby Darin, the Chordettes, Ed Townsend and others.

The core group of teenagers who appeared on the show every day were known as the "Committee." These kids developed a huge following of fans and hangers-on in Baltimore who emulated their dance moves, followed their life stories, and copied their look. Several marriages resulted from liaisons between Committee Members.

This documentary traces the show's history and includes interviews with original committee members and production crew.
