Watch: War Dance For Wooden Indians

Picture of The Raymond Scott Quintette

Today's video features The Raymond Scott Quintette performing the song "War Dance For Wooden Indians."  This originally appeared in the 1938 Hollywood film: "Happy Landing".  The clip really captures Raymond and the boys at their musical best and even includes some tap dancing Native Americans to round out the entertainment.

The film itself starred Sonja Henie, Ethel Merman, Don Ameche and Cesar Romero.  After reading the plot, I can't say I have much inspiration to watch the full film, but this Raymond Scott clip is fantastic.


Watch: "War Dance For Wooden Indians" by The Raymond Scott Quintette from 1938.
