Blogs from My Web Site - Jazz Bands in Pierrot Costumes

As you can see, Pierrot costumes were big during this era. Even Jazz bands dressed in costume. Click on the photos to hear these two bands.

Side Note: The Melody Boys play "The Sheik" 1919, two years before Valentino's film "The Sheik" became a big hit and the term "Sheik" was widely used for guys in the same way "Vamp" was used for women.

The Ten Knights play "My Man Rocks Me" 1924. So, I only count eight Knights in this photo?

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.

Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
