Time-Machine Tuesday: Scopitone Dance Party!
Scopitones have become my latest obsession. According to what I have read, they were a type of jukebox that played 16mm films along with music that found their heyday in the US somewhere around the early 1960's.
I found a few Scopitones videos one day after searching for some Herb Alpert stuff and was immediately hooked . Bright colors, fun music and quirky dance move abound.
Check out a few of my favorites!:
Herb Alpert is the king of fun!
I've loved Lesley Gore ever since the first time I watched Hairspray!
This song's an old favorite!
You not still sitting down, are you? Get up and shake those hips!
Have you ever heard of a Scopitone before? Do you love these videos or what?
