IT’S THE ‘20s AGAIN‼️🎉🎉

 

Gershwin at the piano and his song,”I’d Rather Charleston” sung by Fred and Adele Astaire. No film but still wonderful to hear it.( From LADY BE GOOD, London 1926.)


A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE. HEALTH AND HAPPINESS in 2020.

And now that it is the ‘20s again, LET’S CHARLESTON‼️

 

 

 

 

TEA FOR TWO(1950)

 

Eddie Nugent, Joan Crawford. OUR DANCING DAUGHTERS. 1928

 

The ‘Charleston’ was  a song written In 1923 by James Johnson and Cecil Mack for the Broadway show, “Runnin’ Wild”. ( sung by Elizabeth Welch). And the name did originate from the town of Charleston in South Carolina.

This new, jazzy dance was frowned upon, “Any lover of the beautiful will die rather than be associated with the Charleston.” (A vicar in Bristol, 1926)

 

A Charleston competition in London , and prizes to be presented by Fred and Adele Astaire who were in London starring in LADY BE GOOD.

 

 

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE.

 

 

And why not let’s cut  rug and do the Leg of Mutton Rag!
