Who are those masked people?

Well, since you asked, it's the cast of 1965's Gumnaam.

This dynamic dance number was shown during the opening credits of Ghost World; its retro energy was a great gateway into a movie that had one distant but interested eye on nostalgia. It's also a pretty nice way to spend five and a half minutes on a Sunday, I think.

I learned about this clip via Jim Emerson's fine movie blog "Scanners"; for his far more informed take on it, click here.
