Breakaway with Antonia Christina Basilotta

Antonia Christina Basilotta
Here's one of my favorite short films Bruce Conner's Breakaway from 1966 starring Antonia Christina Basilotta, better known to the general public as Toni Basil.  Toni Basil is a dancer, choreographer, singer, and actress. Basil's 1966 single on A&M records, "Breakaway", after which the film is titled, is also the soundtrack to Toni's frenetic dancing in the film. You can watch more of Toni Basil dancing and acting in such firm film favorites of The Sound The Past Makes as Pajama PartyThe T.A.M.I ShowVillage of the GiantsHead, and Easy Rider.  Breakaway is followed by the B-side of that single, a Graham Gouldman song called "I'm 28".
