Videodrone: France Gall Invites You On A Trip To The Park

Nov 17th, 2006 // 2 Comments

This totally charming clip for France Gall’s bubbly “La Cloche” was made for the French music-film jukebox known as the Scopitone. The exhaustive Scopitone reference Scopitones.com has many gigabytes’ worth of these music-video prototypes, and you can even see Julie London and Petula Clark mime a few bars.

    I was having such a crappy afternoon — thanks for posting this. :D

    It’s adorable…but I can’t help think that somewhere, a demented man with a gleam in his eye is listening to this while sharpening knives, only vaguely aware of the muffled voices screaming to be set free nearby….
