From Boing Boing Video (fast forward to the 2:00 mark):
This film was a 1944 “Soundie”, kind of the prototype of the music video, played on a film projector jukebox in dance halls.
Nerdcore pioneers DEVO more-or-less recreated this clip for the video for “Whip It“. Here, the whip-stripped woman doesn’t object.
That’s what I miss about the 1980s. You could be a complete dweeb and still get a record deal.
