(September 16th, 1924 -

"Her life speaks for itself…she lived a wonderful life, a magical life."
George Burns and Gracie Allen performing ‘Lamb Chops’ (1929)
Louise Brooks and Dario dance in “Spectacular Interpretive Dances.”
" … one of the dance acts is Louise Brooks and Dario from the Place Piquale. Did okay. Miss Brooks is an ex-star of films, but that fact is unmentioned. Her radical change of coiffure makes identification not too easy, especially as dancing is a new role for her. Dario handles her smartly and she handles herself with commendable facility. White satin does not appear to be the ideal selection for her." — Land, Variety, April 17, 1934.
This clip will make you appreciate the work of John Williams (and Ben Burtt, but you already did that)
It’s the newfangled Chewbaccaa scream that kills me.
