40s Music Video

Video Find of the Day

Yes, they had music videos in the 40s! They were shown in movie theaters as shorts preceding or between feature films. This one has been posted at least twice on YouTube. The posters apparently don't know that this is a Glen Miller song being rendered. The title of the posts is Moonlight Cocktails, but the song is actually Moonlight Cocktail (no "s"). It came out in 1942, not the Fifties, as the description suggests (MCMXLII = 1942.) In fact it was #1 in all of March and April of that year! Words by Kim Gannon,
Music by Lucky Roberts. I love the internet!
