Oscar Alemán on Screen

Unfortunately not many filmed sequences featuring Oscar Alemán in performance seem to exist. Hernán Gaffet's documentary on Oscar Alemán, 'Una vida con Swing' (2002), has used most of this material available. However, if you haven't viewed Gaffet's documentary, here is an opportunity to watch Oscar playing in a scene from a movie, probably the 'El idolo del Tango' from 1948. I found the following scene on YouTube, enjoy it!
