Allen Jenkins takes Joan Crawford for a spin

I'm pretty certain this was from the film "They All Kissed The Bride" (1942), which features Joan (a fine dancer at the Cocoanut Grove during the 1920s) in a jitterbug contest. Crawford took the role after Carole Lombard (an old rival of hers from the Grove) died in a plane crash, and donated her salary from the film to the American Red Cross in Carole's memory. It's not much of a film, but then again, when it came to comedy, Crawford was no Lombard.
