Gleefully gleaned from an extremely generous bequest from archivist extraordinaire Rick Prelinger, this eye-popping program of 16mm musical anomalies mostly features “Soundies,” performances on film produced for visual jukeboxes of the ‘40s and ‘50s. More than just kitsch, these oft transcendent artifacts reveal a post-war pop-cultural world of naive charm and irrepressible surrealist imagination. Among this celluloid bonanza are: Steve Lawrence’s Mine and Mine Alone; Vanita Symthe’s Low, Shorty, and Squatty; Buddy Clark’s Moonlight Cocktail; Mousie Powell’s Crazy Things; Ving Merlin’s Enchanted Violins; a ten-year-old Michael Jackson (with the other four); and a man-killing Judo femme fatale! Oh, and did we mention free beer at the bar?
