"A Little Jive Is Good For You" by Martha Tilton

Although hers was the go-to voice when it came time to dub such actresses as Barbara Stanwyck, Martha O'Driscoll, and Anne Gwynne on film, here Martha Tilton (who died on this day in 2006) is all herself - to spectacular results!  Also appearing are the Slate Brothers, whose limited filmography belies their success as raconteurs; for years they ran a club on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles.

This precious little nugget of pop culture comes to us courtesy of Soundies - those grand-daddies of the music video that used to feature in the cinemas of yesteryear, which have been given a new lease on life courtesy of YouTube.
