New-Fangled Dance Craze Hits Hollywood Bars Hard
Sherman Sanders was an actor who played a square dance caller in Hollywood movies starting in the early 1940s. His credits include Bowery Buckaroos, The Devil And Daniel Webster, Lure Of The Wilderness, Ride 'Em Cowboy, Roseanna McCoy, Star Spangled Rhythm, A Stolen Life, and The Andy Griffith Show. Described in the article as "Hollywood's No. 1 caller," he clearly had a flair for self promotion. This newspaper article is short on actual news, but it does give a sense of the excitement around square dancing in the post-WWII years.
