Groovie Movie 1944
Description: A boogie-woogie piano introduces what purports to be a jitterbug lesson, starring prize champion Arthur Walsh, his partner, and then soon different another couples. We begin with steps imported from another dances, like the waltz, then sped up. Next Walsh and his partner present some primary steps, but the movements are too swift for the narrator to describe them or the viewer to learn how to do them. By the end, different couples (all but a pair of briefly-seen kids are white), including some comic ones, give a high-speed demonstration as the melody rocks and swings. These are hep cats. Pete Smith's narration is full of slang.
Released: 19 Feb 1944 Director: Will Jason Writers: Joe Ansen (screenplay), Jameson Brewer (screenplay) Actors: Pete Smith Genres: Short, Comedy, Music

Thompson's Night Out #

Released 5/26/1908

Description: William Thompson and John Smith occupied offices in the same Fresh York skyscraper, and both being seized with an irrepressible desire to slash loose and paint things crimson, arranged it as follows in this Biograph picture. Thompson sent a message to his wife that his mate Smith was ill, and it was his duty to perform that spiritual work of mercy, "comfort the afflicted," hence he would not have her wait up for him as he might be late. Smith did likewise, using Thompson as the object of his humane consideration. This done, they begin off to create a night of it. First they visit the gilded throne room of a temple of Bacchus, where they moisten their parched spirits with dry Martinis. They are later in a most glorious condition. Smith suggests the present where "Amateur Night" is on. - Written by Moving Picture Globe synopsis

Groovie Movie Reviews:

Groovie Film is not just groovy, it's GREAT! I'd heard about this tiny gem quite some time ago, but being from the '40s, it's not one you come across that often. For anybody into the swing stage - or if you appreciate dancing of any type - then this is for you. This is the true deal! Only a short film, Groovie Film includes some nice dance scenes. Very smooth, very ellegant - yet fun. While ostensibly a dance instruction film, Groovie Film is so much more. Highly suggested - if you can search it! Actually where are my dance shoes... I gotta go and work on a several of those crazy steps!!


As an example of the jitterbug craze that swept America during the early '40s, GROOVIE MOVIE is about as nice a film short as possible. The different dances are filmed from odd angles (including beneath a glass floor to present all the intricate steps and patterns).The dancers are nimble youngsters who obviously know how to strut their energetic items before the cameras, mugging for the close-ups and having a high time while swinging their partners not only to and fro but up and over.A nice example of the sort of film short that played with a detail movie in the old days. I'm surprised to read that one of the comments here states: "Not really a movie. It may have been produced to appear in a 'soundie' but I'm not sure about that." Obviously, this person never heard of a film short, the sort that were a featured part of each double detail tool in the '30s and '40s.


Groovie Film (1944)*** (out of 4)Fun Pete Smith short is part documentary and part what you'd expect from Smith. The short talks about the craze going through American known as jitterbug. We see a couple showing off how the dance works at a slow pace and then we see them really going at it. Smith, the narrator, gives a several funny jokes before letting the folks go to work showing off the dance. I can't recall seeing a short talking about the jitterbug so on that lvl this here is cute neat. The film does a very nice job at showing off the dance and it's also cute nice technically as we receive some nice camera angles to present off the action including a several sequences filmed on a glass floor so we can look up. Smith's jokes should have probably been left off but fanatics of melody will certainly wish to check this out.
