Sometime in the early sixties, a team from the Combat Camera Group out of Japan arrived in Taipei to make a movie about how young American military people spent their leisure time. I guess they somehow got the idea that leisure time might be spent at one of the local clubs. Hard to believe.
Anyway, Sarj Bloom took these photos while the crew was on location at a bar near the compound. The PH2 in uniform was Sarj's buddy "Zip" Zimmerman, another USTDC photo lab type.
For those of you under the age of 55, that dance move was part of a dance called "The Twist," which was a big hit by Chubby Checker back in the day. You sort of pivoted back and forth on the balls of your feet and...well anyway, we considered it pretty cool as I recall.
Sarj doesn't think that the movie was ever released, so I guess all these folks had to keep their day jobs...or night jobs, as the case may be.
