Gorilla Out-Dances Human Female Partner

Before there was Dancing With The Stars, there was dancing with the Gorillas, circa 1927, produced by the ever cost conscious micro-media-mogul, Van Smith.

The micro studio, operating a stone's through Mack Sennett's tri-angle shaped studio in Los Angeles's Hyperion Valley, cranked out fifty-two 12 second film clips a day. Enough for a weekly release for the following year.

Audiences around the country looked forward to 12 seconds of madness each week.

Here's to Van Smith, Micro-Media-Moguls everywhere, and you!
