From the movie: CITY OF CONQUEST 1940
There’s a lot going on here mostly Shag and Lindy Hop. I’m not sure who the dancers are though I think one of the dancers in the second segment may be Don Gallaher.
Say, this is real swell–I ain't kiddin'!
Why did you cut it short? Cagney and Sheridan could have beaten any of those hepcats hands down.
I can see why old-timer adults of this time thought this would be the "corruption and downfall" of the youth….Oh, if only they could see the kids these days 🙂
This movie is city for conquest,great movie
I always wanted to learn this style of dance. It looks like it's free wheeling anything goes as long as you stay in the beat. My dad was in his late teens & 20's in the 40's he wouldn't learn to do it, said it looked like ( rasist remark here ) dancing. He & mom taught me polka, waltz & shotish when in my teens.
I am only giving this video a thumbs down, because the thumb nail was a partial click bait implying that James Cagney was the one dancing. And Also because they cut it off just as he was about to dance!
Tsk…tsk…such scandalous dancing! And to think old farts complain about today's dancing.
Now this is dancing….
Everybody got that gangsta voice.
