1920s Humor: Coffee Dan’s was a speakeasy in San Francisco, where parts of Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer was filmed. The place was fairly high-society, despite fronting as a breakfast place. The hilariously named society magazine “The Wasp” called it “The rendezvous for San Francisco’s Elite.”
A music video from the Semafor theater in Prague, 1960. The Semafor theater was also where Milos Forman filmed his first movie. The theater is still open, with much the same crew as they had in the 60s. Most of their other music videos are equally amazing. Which leads again to the question. Why isn’t real life like this?
