New York City USA Date:1928 Duration:1 min 30 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Scenes of New York City night clubs, during the "Roaring 20's," beginning with the relatively sedate Versailles Club, on 50th Street, where Rudy Vallee and his musical group play for patrons dancing. Rudy Vallee is seen playing the saxophone. He was so popular, the club was renamed 'Villa Vallee'. Several businessmen gathered at the night club. The views then shift rapidly, in a montage of scenes showing increasingly wilder antics in night club and speakeasy locations throughout New York City. Champagne bottle being opened. (This was illegal. National prohibition was still in force.) A singer performs. A man smoking a cigar. An artist plays his trumpet. A band of musicians perform. A couple waves their hands at the performance. A girl artist performs a dance. A scantily clad girl comes from behind stage curtains and performs in a burlesque show. Girls perform dance in a follies type act and balloons thrown up in the air. Fast montage of wild partying and raucous behavior with streamers and balloons flying.
