I was surprised by how much different stuff about Les Charlots is on the internet. There's a page here, another here that includes info about all the films they made. Many of their records can be purchased from this page. Here's another one with some kind of Jukebox you can listen to (it's all in French but I did get one song to play by accident). Here is the Gainsbourg parody "Sois Erotique". Les Charlots-Sois Erotique.mov
This was posted to the old site on the "Name That Scopitone" page. I just used to refer to him as "Angry French Guy". But thanks to Arno of Les Synapses I now know that his name is Jacques Filh, the song is called "Laches Moi", and even that the girl he's singing to is "Cleo". Thanks Arno! Laches Moi.mov
On Friday, February 27, The Secret Cinema will present Scopitone Party, a unique collection of music films from the early and mid 1960s. They were originally made for a French film jukebox called Scopitone,
which entertained patrons in bars, cafes and bus stations in both
Europe and America. The film clips, which feature performers both
famous and obscure -- and are considered to be among the more important
of the many predecessors to the modern rock video -- are today quite
scarce, and difficult to see in their original form. Link.
