June Barton with the Emil Coleman Orchestra sings "Got To Be This or That."
Recorded during 1940-1946 "Soundies" were the precursor to today's music videos. They were 2- to 3-minute black & white 16mm films with sound which were played in refrigerator sized juke boxes called Panorams. One could select from dozens for just 10 cents each! This one is available for free quick-play and/or download at http://www.archive.org/details/SoundieK

Note: the musicians aren't all left-handed; the image was reversed through a series of mirrors and projected on the back of the glass screen in the Panoram.
