    Mary Tyler Moore was the hottest woman on TV in the ’60’s. Period.

    Richard Deacon looked pretty good dancing, too. Apparently he had polio as a kid and took dance lessons to strengthen his legs.

  4. Much hotter, and more fakey-performer, than I had remembered her being–I guess I mostly saw her in her own show where she was more wimpy and sedate.

    I wonder how many people are watching this today thinking if only I could dance like this… Wait, if only there was a place where I could dance like this. Actually, just a place where I could be with other people would be enough. Wait, if only there was a place at all I could be other than my house:)

      I used to be able to ski, too. but, a lack of snow stops me 🙂 That and all the too-much-fun I had as a kid. Durn arthritis 🙂

  7. Yeah, shy little Mary gets prodded to dance, and, just impromptu, unrehearsed, off the cuff, on the spot, makes up that fiery performance. “Oh, that? It’s just how folks entertained each other at house parties back then.” Not like they’d be watching tv. Oh, wait…

    Watching her dance, it occurred to me…

    It was pretty hot for its time, but, still acceptable for largely-prudish mass broadcast consumption.

    A generation before, for many folks, that would have been considered shockingly ‘risque,’ or worse.

    A generation after, for too many SJWs, it’s a politically incorrect portrayal of wimmenz, etc.

    Glad to have grown up in the window in between.
