Whitey's Lindy Hoppers

Video Find of the Day

Whitey's Lindy Hoppers were featured in a scene of the 1941 movie Hellzapoppin. From other scenes of the movie on YouTube it looks like the kind that Mel Brooks wishes he made. The main characters are white guys moving through film studio stages in and out of scenes. It's surreal and the humor is whacked. This vignette is a dance classic which also offers a window into race relations of the day.
