A LITTLE SONG, A LITTLE DANCE (2022)

All singing! All dancing! All rarely seen clips from the Paramount Archives! Come and see well-known stars like Fred Astaire, Nat King Cole, and Dorothy Dandridge and get acquainted with the likes of the Cackle Sisters, among many other surprises. Music in the movies has always been an essential element of the fantasy world it helps create. This special presentation by the ever-informative and entertaining Andrea Kalas, Senior Vice President of the Paramount Archives, aims to dive into on-screen talents both well-known and worth-remembering, offering something for every musical taste: from country and blues to rock, swing, and kazoos. The curated assortment of clips, taken from rarely seen short subjects (“I’m a Wild Woman,” “Sweet and Low,” “A Tale of Two Cafés”) as well as feature films like Barnyard Follies (1940), Let’s Dance (1950), and Johnny Guitar (1954), showcases nightclub acts, barn dances, beautiful melodies, acrobatic choreography, and much more. Get ready for some toe-tapping, rug-cutting, happy-feet-making, hip-swinging, follow-the-bouncing-ball fun! (d. Various, 40m, Digital)
