Scopitone Circa 1950'-1960'sComes complete with a full selection of 16mm Sound Musical Films of the 50-60'sBefore MTV, and long before we could stream music videoson our cell phones, mid-1960s American hepcats gathered around 500-pound, 7-foot-high contraptions to watch 16-millimeter color sound films of B-list pop stars gyrating to their latest hits. The contraption in question was usually a Scopitone, one of several audio-visual jukeboxes found primarily in bars. Their reign, if you can even call it that, was brief, and by the end of the decade, the novelty of these then-high-tech devices had faded entirelyScopitone films were deliberately exotic, designed to appeal to a target audience of men on the prowl in bars. They had to grab peoples attention from across a room They are the only type of film produced for people who arent watching them.
In general, nobody is choosing to look at the Scopitone machine. Theyre mostly guys hanging out in a bar. One Scopitone classic is Neil Sedakas Calendar Girl.
Its just Neil in an ever-changing assortment of dinner jackets surrounded by a bunch of Las Vegas showgirls in very elaborate costumes, each themed for a different month of the year.
