Cowaramup Hall... our Saturday night social venue.
Set in the heart of Cowaramup, this hall was built in 1930 by the Cowaramup Progress Association. The hall was built for just 102/5/6 pounds! To celebrate it's opening, a ball was held on the 29th November 1930.
Cowaramup Hall is now heritage listed and is a beautiful piece of history in our little town that was established in the 1920's, making it even more fitting that we hold a swing dance social there!
Jean in a publicity photo from "Reckless", 1935. This was the first Jean Harlow film to lose money - it was based off a real life murder scandal, and Jean felt her husband's suicide in the movie was meant to capitalize off her real husband Paul Bern's 1932 suicide. According to William Powell's autobiography, Jean initially refused the role on that basis but he had convinced her to accept it rather than go through another suspension from MGM like she had the previous year.
A stunning shot of Ginger alongside Fred Astaire during the "Never Gonna Dance" number in Swing Time (1936). The working titles for this film were originally I Won't Dance and Never Gonna Dance. The film was based off of a screenplay by Erwin Gelsey, titled Portrait of John Garett.
