Hi! I have a researcher who is look for film/video material having to do
with dancehalls in the 20's and 30's--particularly big public dancehalls
frequented by common folk (not Nick and Nora Charles Art Deco nightclub stuff).

We've come up with "the Flapper Story" and a number of 20's and 30's race
movies which feature such places... It'd be best if we could find documentary
footage rather than Hollywood recreations.

Any scintillating ideas?
