    Snake Hips (Do the Wiggle Waggle Woo) - 1929 - MUST watch twice, once for Ann Pennington dancing in front and then must see silly background dance choreography with snaky arms. fun starts at 1:25

    Wild and Jazzy song from - 1929 +++ by perfectjazz78 : The Snake's Hips number from 1929 performed by Sharon Lynn and danced by famed Ziegfeld Follies dancer Ann Pennington. She was the first to introduce the "Black Bottom" dance ... in the 1926 edition of George White's Scandals. Unfortunately, most of her film appearences are lost. Although this copy is incomplete, it is the best copy I have ... the cuts are obvious.

Drucilla Strain, Ziegfeld girl, by Alfred Cheney Johnston, ca. 1929 Ziegfeld girl Drucilla Strain, half length, facing right. The (sadly rather carelessly handled) LoC photo description page gives the date as ca. 1920 and her name as Drucilla Straine, but it seems like Strain and 1929 are closer to the truth. Very little other info on her that I could find, except that she peformed from 1929 to 1946.
