1930s: Busby Berkeley’s Dancers

From "Hollywood Movie Stills" (Titan Books) by Joel W. Finler (see below)

“Busby Berkeley (1895–1976) was a highly influential Hollywood movie director and musical choreographer. Berkeley was famous for his elaborate musical production numbers that often involved complex geometric patterns. Berkeley’s works used large numbers of showgirls and props as fantasy elements in kaleidoscopic on-screen performances.”

    Whoa, freaky optical illusion for the third picture after the Wikipedia quote: when I scroll down with my mouse wheel, as that picture moves up the faces seem to be moving, rushing out towards me.

    But oddly when I scroll down using the slider on the right I don’t get that effect. Must be the particular speed and/or the jerky, start-stop motion when I use the mouse wheel that makes it work.
