Thanks! Share it with your friends!


A short film about one of the most popular swing orchestras of the 1930’s.

After a brief introduction of Shaw’s theme song, “Nightmare,” the band plays “Free Wheeling” as it is assembled.

Helen Forrest sings “I Have Eyes” and the band jams with “Shoot the Likker to Me, John Boy.”
