102 year old woman sees herself on film for the first time ever

During the Harlem Renaissance of the 1930’s and 1940’s Alice Barker was a chorus line dancer. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo and Zanzibar Club, alongside legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill “Bojanggles” Robinson.

Alice has danced in many movies, commercials and TV shows, but has never seen any of them. All of her photographs and memorabilia have been lost over the years.

Three “Soundies” in which Alice appears have been retrieved, and in the video below you will witness Alice watching herself dance for the first time. She had never seen herself in motion in her life!

Touching moment 102 year old Alice Barker sees herself on film
‘Was that me?’ Touching moment 102-year-old woman who was a chorus line dancer for Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly sees herself on film for the first time Alice Barker danced in legendary Apollo and Zanzibar clubs during the 1930’s Harlem Renaissance, as well as movies, TV and commercials But she had lost her old photographs with time, and no one could find her videos because of a misspelling of her name David Shuff, who met Barker years ago, reunited her with some of her short musical films known then as ‘soundies’ The videos now play in the common room of her retirement home, where Shuff says she is a ‘rock star’
