Great live recording of Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto performing The Girl from Ipanema. I love the set design. Enjoy it here on The Invisible Agent before YouTube takes it down for copyright infringement…

I love this old photograph!

Busby Berkeley was a movie director and musical choreographer from the late 1920’s – 1970’s.  His most famous work was during the 1930’s.  He was known for his large extravagant sets and aerial shots of showgirls creating kaleidoscopic effects in camera.  Below are some great stills from various films along with a clip from the 1934 film “Dames”.  I found these images on Google Images.
