Who knew that “The Girl from Ipanema” was on the soundtrack of the 1964 movie, “Get Yourself a College Girl?” I sure didn’t–it was wayyyyyyy before my time, but check out this selection from the movie, which features a load of mid-century modern details:
(H/t to Big Tent Democrat at TalkLeft for putting me in mind of this song.) The singer is Astrud Gilberto, and I never would have guessed she was such a sweet, young thing. (What’s with the dork quartet backing her up, though? I know it’s Stan Getz, but geez. . . ) Dig the “Rec Room” paneling and flagstone walls in what looks like a dorm lounge setting–apparently, trousers or skirts are purely optional at home for these college girls! Be sure not to miss the deer heads nailed to the left and right walls that frame the windows behind the band. You can see Nancy Sinatra in this movie, too.
The only thing missing is a chandelier that looks like a giant atom. Far out!
