I got caught in the 7th Circle of Youtube period clips. And just barely escaped. But I have to say I adored all those historical films of the 20's.
And I wasn't the only one either. A lot of people have remixed the videos and set them to modern music. Its weird how well they fit together. If you do a bit more searching, you will find the originals with the original music.
On a more serious note, I wonder if this fascination with the 20s and its disastrous end is prevalent because we are in the same hot water now?
