Flappers on Film: Vintage Kodak footage in Color


Flappers, the wild and young generation of the 1920's are back with us once more. Captured by the medium of colored film, several actresses of 1922 are shown HERE in self conscious poses, gestures and movements. Kodak film experiments of that era recorded for us a generation that is now long gone, but is still a strong influence on us today. Enjoy this video, it's such an intimate peek into their lives.

Doing the math, if the young women in these shots were about 22 years old, then they would have been 110 this year.

photo image above is a random flapper photo that is not seen in this film, but I like her anyway

I think that photo is of film actress Nancy Carroll? (Just for the record...)
