The Broadway - "Swing Shift"
Hollywood, California - filmed in 1973
Swing Shift (1974) is a weird little gem of a short film by stop motion genius, Mike Jittlov (also director of the popular underground cult film The Wizard of Speed and Time), that combines stop motion, live action, and an old department store. When the store is closed, the lights all out, and the clock strikes 12, this place truly takes on a life of its own!
I'm sharing this today because it has some nice vintage '70s footage of the old Broadway Department Store, where it was filmed, and additionally because it captures some of that neat-o retro shopping vibe I'm trying to relive here at MOA. And cuz I also just think it's pretty dang cool. :) Enjoy!
