From Ebb Tide (1937) starring Ray Milland, Francis Farmer, Lloyd Nolan and Barry Fitzgerald. The scene features Fitzgerald as a ship's steward who has broken into the cargo hold to steal some champagne. He enters the kitchen with his bottles in his pants pockets and begins dancing, mostly shaking his butt around.

This is a very hard to find film so the quality is poor.




 

Then the cork pops on one of the bottles in his pants.

There are parts where my wife was laughing so hard I had to pause the film. A couple of times Fitzgerald tries to walk backwards up steep steps and fails miserably, once while threatening to box someone.

Loved this.  Just the right length, excellent breaks for humor and we have both solos and combo dancing.   I smiled throughout the whole thing.
