Alice Barker, a 102-year-old former dancer who made movies, commercials and TV shows during the Harlem Renaissance of the '30s and '40s had never seen herself on film until just recently, when the folks at Tenfresh obtained some of the "soundies" she had appeared in and showed them to her.
Barker lit up upon seeing herself on film, laughing and remembering it:
"Making me wish I could get out of this bed and do it all over again."
Watch the heartwarming video, AFTER THE JUMP…
Tenfresh notes that Barker is still alive and well:
If you'd like to send Alice fan mail we would love to see her get the adoration she deserves after so many years! (We'll do our best to read some of your comments to her as well.):
