• Short Summary

    A look at the marvellous invention of the slot machine rounded off with a song from Sandra Barry.

  • Description

    London and Llandudno

    People are seen looking at a jukebox - and making a selection - its called a scopitone machine as it has a screen, which shows members of a group, Sandra Barry and Her Boyfriends - the boys are seen trying out guitars in a guitar shop, and the group are then seen performing 'Really Gonna Shake'.

    Note: Love the gold boots ! See also 277.03 for the main slot machine sequence and CP 489 Cuts

    This is a fabulous pop item - I think that the band is actually called "Sandra Barry and Her Boys" - really good for swinging sixties stuff, the beat group scene, pop groups, groovy girl dancing and a great song. Sandra's "Boys" try to persuade her to do the shake and she repeats, "No, no, I don't want to shake!" several times. They eventually get her to "Shake", she gets off her stool, takes off her gold fringed poncho and grooves to the beat - I love it! I guess that the scopitone was a prototype video jukebox.

    The Boys went on to be known as "The Action" - they had a strong mod following - JH.
