Produced by Living Traditions, the people responsible for the very successful Lindy Hop revival in Seattle, this recent documentary provides an intimate glimpse of Lindy Hopper Frank Manning. Frankie shares his recollections and reflections.His warmth and humanity come through, his serious side and his irresistible smile. Historic material in the video consists of photoraphs from Frankie's personal scrapbook. Unfortunately, there are no old filmclips. However, the dancing clips shown feature exciting recent events, such as Can't Top the Lindy Hop, Frankie Manning's 80th birthday celebration in New York. 

Available thru SavoyStyle Swing Dance Shop.
