The Girl from Ipanema

Stumbled onto this clip of a young Astrud Gilberto singing the classic hit backed by Stan Getz. It comes from a film titled Get Yourself a College Girl (1964), a film I haven't seen. The performance seems so wooden it verges on Lynchian surrealism, but I still enjoyed seeing it sung in the context of its time.

Unfortunately this clip is cut short. There's also another clip that runs longer. It has better color, but unfortunately, there's a ton of noise on the audio track.
