Abstract:

The film begins with academy leader running down. At the number 4, the music, a song by Ray Charles, starts. The leader is intercut with frenetically shot and overlapped images: street lights at night, a naked woman dancing, fireworks. The film then incorporates an anti-war message, cutting in appropriated footage of a patriotic march, a Mickey Mouse cartoon showing Mickey raising the American flag at Iwo Jima, and war combat. Over all of this frenzied movement and editing, Ray Charles continues to sing about the girl with the red dress on who knows how to shake her thang.
