Tommy Greco and Emily Schwartz Greco created this tribute documentary in 2003, when Frankie Manning was 88 years young. It features interviews with him, along with Norma Miller, Dawn Hampton, Jean Veloz, Ray Phelps, Steven Mitchell, Erik Robison, Yuval Hod, and Nathalie Gomes, plus footage of the DC-Baltimore lindy hop / swing scene at that time. Happy 100th birthday Frankie!
