Reg Kehoe and His Marimba Queens was a quirky act that performed on stage and in films from the ’30s to the ’50s. Clips from the short film A Study in Brown (1944) is the main surviving footage of this incredible 9-person group from the era. The stunning sound of so many lovely marimbas is unique! This clip mixes footage from this entertaining performance with that of another unique routine. Three cheerleaders do an energetic performance complete with backflips and lifts.
The three Winter Sisters were a tumbling and dance act in the ’30s and ’40s and they do a wonderful job here showcasing their acrobatic skills. We love clips from back then because performers really gave it their all in these routines! Check it out in the video below. And, be sure to click here for another classic dance scene from the ’40s!
