Crazy House (aka: Casa de locos)

-- Synopsis:
    Another Olsen and Johnson wacky, quirky film. Filled with stooges, stunts, gags, comedy, dancers, singers, specialty acts and more. This filmed was made just after Hellzapoppin'.

* Features:
    The highlight of this film dance wise is the legendary Ballroom dancers Tony and Sally DeMarco. Many standard 1940's musical numbers. There is some Lindy Hop in

a brief  scene to the Count Basie Orchestra. Shows dancers coming to see Count Basie on a Block Party. As the dancers approach they start dancing in the street. The big man Tiny Bunch shows his swing dance agility. Pepsi Bethel does some Tricks (Air Steps) as a crowd gathers around him.
