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

Perfect! That's what I call entertainment! Thanks for your hard work! Wonder how many clips are there bundled? Ok, one could count them... but then the magic threatens to fade. Without speed adjustment? Fantanstic! The source quality seem excellent too. Congrats to this ... ! 5000 dislikes? - Only explanation for me that those downers don't like funky music. But then, why don't move on next? No reason enough to thumb down. That deceives a wrong overall image. Walter "derVito"

Makes me wish I didn't have an office job.
Terrifically clever, brilliant, funny, entertaining as hell and really well done. And they say you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Here you've retrained even dead people! Amazing! If millions don't download this, there's no hope for America..... Okay, then can I speak to the steerage passengers now?

Ookaaay! I am old enough to remember many of those movies as major features on broadcast television. The dancers were still living celebrities. The dancing was terrific then, and with this music it is terrific all over again! This is a video treasure. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch this a few more times.

This beat isn't really that funky. Good editing job, but as a funk/soul drummer from the 70's, I attest that this is a simple, uninspiring beat. That actually makes it easier to match-up with these steps. Again, good job though.

Fred Astaire practiced dancing for 9 hours a day. By the end of the day, his 👞 👞 shoes would be soaked with blood.

YT Gold! I salute from whom it came. NOT a simple thing to imagine this, then produce it to such perfection. Many man-hours to get it right.
