More on Paula Wayne-Scopitones

The ever elusive Paula Wayne actually filmed two Scopitone romps for two of her Colgems singles.

For those who don't know what a Scopitone is/was, it was a forerunner of today's music video. I think it was shot on 16mm film. American Scopitones were shown on a device that was placed in bars. Although popular in Europe (in particular, in France), it never caught on here and died in the early 1970s.

Anyway, does anyone either have these films or can tell us a little more about them?
