My favorite scene from the movie Picnic (1955). In this clip you will see what I have always envisioned today's 1950's scene to be.
Music : Ernie Higgins and his orchestra playing Pennies From Heaven.
I have searched and searched for this scene on youtube and never found it so I made it a task to buy the software to allow me to upload it for all to enjoy. The scene plays the entire song through.
Picnic is a 1955 Cinemascope film in Technicolor which tells the story of an ex-college football star turned drifter who arrives in a small Kansas town on Labor Day and is drawn to a girl who is already spoken for. The plot covers a 24-hour period. With a cast headed by William Holden, Kim Novak, Susan Strasberg, Cliff Robertson, Arthur O'Connell, Nick Adams, Betty Field, Rosalind Russell and Verna Felton, the film is sometimes cited as a richly detailed snapshot of life in the American Midwest during the 1950s. It won two Academy Awards and was nominated for four more. Source: wikipedia
