Boy! What A Girl !

-- Synopsis:
     Tim Moore (Kingfish on TV's " Amos 'n' Andy") as a female impersonator who is hired by two smooth-talking producers to pose as a financial backer for their fledgling revue. But when their scheme backfires, Moore is forced to show off his cross-dressing skills on the Great White Way. Madness and mayhem mix with jam sessions at a Harlem roof party where legendary drummer Gene Krupa performs a surprise drum solo.

* Film Features:
     The dancing takes place in a living room, much like a rent party. The International

Jitterbugs,  aka: Harlemaniacs, aka Whitey's Lindy Hoppers appear in this film dancing their famous Lindy Hop. These dancers are not the usual Whitey's Lindy Hoppers. First dancer might be Shorty George Snowden (looks a lot like him.) There are a lot of fast and good tricks (Air Steps) in this video as well as some very good swing-outs plus some Partner Charleston.
