Broadway Melody of 1929
Flappers in full motion! The great talking movie and early musical "Broadway Melody of 1929" is a fantastic way to see flapper fashions as they were worn that year. This black and white film was an Oscar award winning movie in its day. Now it seems quaint at times, but the overall peak into the past is well worth it.
Here is a short bit from the beginning of this film. Catch the two flappers who are featured in this segment. They are fun to watch.
If this teaser makes you want to see more, Netflix has a copy to rent, or if you are lucky, maybe your local library has a copy too. My VHS copy turned up on the sale shelf at my favorite thrift store.
