If you like this video, please support these film preservation charities: The British Film Institute, https://goo.gl/iwTkD7 The George Eastman Museum, http://eastman.org/donate The Film Foundation, http://www.film-foundation.org/donation My inspiration came from What's the Mashup? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmnSm_d2ll4) but I didn't manage 100! The idea was to do the same for movies from the Golden Age – meaning no title later than 1953 (although there is one at the end.) Oh, and none of these clips was sped up or slowed down. If you like the clips, go buy the movies on DVD! And the song on Google Play or iTunes! And thanks also to IMDB, clipconverter.cc and Nero Video. Turn on subtitles to find out the film names. PS. I write books as well. Here's two very reasonably priced ones about movies: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Light-Affliction-History-Preservation-Restoration-ebook/dp/B00PDTJCZM/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1445792900&sr=8-1 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Halliwells-Horizon-Leslie-Halliwell-Guides-ebook/dp/B005CYFWKW/ref=sr_1_1_twi_kin_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1445792934&sr=8-1&keywords=halliwell%27s+horizon

Did you also make a similar clip, to the song "Born To be Alive"?? It uses clips of old musicals and mashes them up together, very similar to this one! I LOVE that one too!! :D

music and dancing, universal and timeless

At less than 5 minutes, this video should be included in both USC and UCLA film school as an example of film editing. Best "amateur" editing I've ever seen.
Zero 2 Hiroki (4 days ago)
This just proves that old dances are better than today’s dancing. Seriously... dabbing and twerking isn’t dancing!!!! It’s tasteless!!

I wonder if Bruno Mars has seen this, and if so what he thinks of it?
smiler (5 days ago)
When I see Shirley Temple I get so sad for her. Though the clips with her tapping with the black dude are absolutely fine. He was respectful of her boundaries and respectful to her as a professional little person. Other colleagues I hope are burning in hell.

#67. George Murphy. In 1969, my 5 siblings and I were trapped in a nightmare Irish orphanage. My mom had to come back to the US so she wouldn't lose her green card (we were US birthright citizens). She didn't have the money to bring us back with her. Her relatives wouldn't help, so we were placed in Goldenbridge, one of the worse Irish orphanages. By 1969, George Murphy had become an US Senator from California. My mom contacted him, and basically he got all 6 of us out of that hellhole. Thank you, Senator Murphy, RIP.

Serendipity..."The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. As in "a fortunate stroke of serendipity". As in finding this video on YT by pure accident. I cannot erase the smile from my face. Like they used to say (paraphrasing), "I been out East and I been out West, but this is some of the stuff I like the best !" Kudos
