The Campus Crawl

Just a quick post for today. In my ongoing search for obscure and wacky dances from the 1930s I came across this little ditty. Dig that dizzy dames crazy shoulder action. . .

The Society Page: Tailwaggers Party 1938

Dateline - Beverly Hills 1938: Bette Davis hosted a lavish soiree for her fellow pet loving celebs in order to raise money for a new animal shelter in the Los Angeles area. Ms. Davis, the president of the Southern California Tailwaggers, and invited guests enjoyed a fine evening of dining, dancing, and merriment. I bet those pooches are going to love their new home!
