    Frankie Manning: Never Stop Swinging
    Produced by Julie Cohen in Frankie's last year, and released shortly after his passing, on the eve of the Frankie95 festival, this documentary is a fitting tribute to a great man. The documentary features the last major interview of Frankie Manning before his death, as well as precious archival footage of his dancing from the 1930's to 2009 in New York, Hollywood, Sweden, France, Italy and Singapore. Footage highlights include scenes of Manning's birthday parties, where he danced with one woman for each year he'd been alive, the legendary dance scene choreographed and headlined by Manning for the film "Hellzapoppin," and the phenomenal duet with his 76-year-old son, Chazz, himself a professional dancer. Frankie was a born storyteller, with a huge smile and an even bigger laugh.
