Attention, fans of vaudeville, minstrel shows, and vintage musicals: Perk up your ears and put on your dancin’ shoes as lost chapters from the big book of Live Entertainment history are re-opened in this one-of-a-kind classic compilation of feature films from the late 1940s to the and early ’50s. Many of the most memorable vaudeville headliners preceding and including that era strut their stuff in these extravaganzas–the singers, dancers, and acrobatic acts that got that generation’s toes tappin’ and funny bones ticklin’.
