Flying derbys! Revolving revolvers! Ladders to nowhere! It's Hans Richter's wonderful Vormittagsspuk
(or, Ghosts Before Breakfast
), certainly one of the most playful and entertaining of all the Dada film experiments of the 1920s. Presented here with a nicely done soundtrack by Donald Sosin
Over at UbuWeb, you can see Vormittagsspuk
with another soundtrack. Don't know where this soundtrack is from, and for me, it's not as much fun as the Donald Sosin soundtrack, but I thought I should include it here anyway.
Also, I happened upon this curious bit of film/music oddness, and this seems like a good place to link to it: "Psychedelic 1930s BING CROSBY video
". Be sure to read the YouTube poster's description of the clip. Very unexpected little piece of film art there, and really quite lovely.
