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

First, I'm glad this showed up in my recommended and thank you for putting this together and sharing. Second, OMG @ 4:29 (I think the Berry Brothers) when they jumped over the band and the middle guy landed in a split I literally jumped out of my chair. That was freaking amazing!

This is a wonderful video compilation from days long past. It's a great pity that the history captured in the moment is so ill served by an accompanying soundtrack that is the MOST annoying of any that I've heard in a very long time. If you think a song that's made up of a single phrase repeated over and over: like "Don't believe me -- just watch" is a really catchy tune with meaningful lyrics, and -- wait for it -- bonus, you can dance to it -- I will guess that you were born post 2000. Not a knock against young kids (I love them to death) -- just an observation on a generation gap that seems to me to grow larger with every year that I remain on earth. But, from reading/studying history, it was ever thus. Older generations ALWAYS seem to be out of touch with the real world that kids live in, in the present.

I am feeling so stupid. I was so impressed by this video that I showed it to my grandson. Then he broke my heart. He explained these were done by using ?4/4? beats and just combined. He is 17 and brilliant with piano,guitar,and trumpet.(he taught himself the piano)Well,after hearing his explanation,I feel foolish. It was still a pretty good "trick". I still like it.

Ellen Rowan (1 day ago)
This is my absolutely favorite music video of all time!!!! It is so so clever- I can't imagine how long it took to make it, though I think it would have been fun- The the music sinced? sunc? ;-} to the dancing is marvelous and VERY impressive! and of course IMHO, the music and dancing movies of the 1940's are unsurpassed!!!

When I was a little girl I had the Biggest crush on Gene Kelly. I did not understand how old the musicals were. I used to rent Summer Stock on VHS at Blockbuster Video just about every weekend. When Netflix was invented, I emailed them every week asking them to get Summer Stock on DVD, and my whole que was mainly musicals. Seeing the 1976 That's Entertainment (I was born in 1979) I finally realized he was an old man before I was born. Sadly I did not grow up to marry a young Gene Kelly, but he and Michael J. Fox (Family Ties anybody) will always be my 12 year old self's first loves, or more accurately lusts.
