a mystery for stuff that moves readers

what is it

Anyone know what film this still comes from? Anyone know where I can find footage of this scene?

I’ve been seeing it passed around Facebook on a player that I don’t think I can reblog here.

It is pretty incredible: two tappers basically breakdancing 50 years before the advent of breakdancing.

Rumour is, it’s an MGM picture called “Over The Counter”.

Gadzooks! You are correct!

Alas, I still can’t find this scene anywhere that I can post or link to here. It’s apparently on a laser disc collection called MGM Cavalcade of Shorts, which I used to watch for hours in the media library when I was in college, but I don’t remember ever seeing this scene.

Thanks so much for the tip!
