Coordinated dresses!
Tambourines!
Squiffy Hairdos!
Bongos!

The music had a good groove to it, but the organist's hair(?) frightened me. This must have been some 14-year-old's fantasy from the 1950's...

The clip is from the 1944 movie "Bathing Beauty" starring Red Skelton and Esther Williams.

The little brunette rocking out on the drum set is Jean Porter.

According to the movie, at night, instead of participating in the clean, healthy fun of lingerie pillow-fights, college girls sneak over to the Assistant Music Professor's quarters for impromptu concerts.

My mother and Ethel Smith were friends, and I have heard her play often. She was a talented musician and an expert charmer.

I'm old enough to remember when all the malls had organ stores offering "easy finance terms".

Heck, I'm old enough to remember malls. :)

An Esther Williams flick? I buy pieces from her swimsuit line for Mrs. Roscoe every now and then for Mothers Day. This year's suit was leopard print (much classier than it sounds).
