Title

Saturday Night Square Dance - Jim Boyd, 1949

Description

"Saturday Night Square Dance" was released in 1949 as a Soundie; the footage included here is all that we have been able to locate. (We would appreciate information from anyone having a complete copy of the film.)

Featured here are Jim Boyd and His Men of the West. Jom Boyd was the brother of Bill Boyd, well known for western swing music, and this film combines some western swing music with calls.

The footage shows some fine examples, starting around 1:35, of the styling sometimes called the Abilene Lift.
