Friday happy dance

  1. From Shall We Dance (1937)

    The old feminitsy saying was, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, backwards, in high heels. For this clip, I would replace “backwards” with “in a full skirt.”

    I actually kept anticipating her doffing the long skirt, so we could see more of her legs, I mean, leg work. We only get one flash as she twirls. It’ll do.

    I’m once again convinced that Astaire is actually a weightless fluid.

    At IMDb, there’s a clip from the movie that features Edward Everett Horton. Funny, because I had just brought him up last night in Ace comments (recalling his narration of Fractured Fairy Tales).

    Two tremendous entertainers. They always say that the object of dancing is to make the woman look glamorous, but in this case they do it for each other.

    Just to bad these movies are not made anymore. We have lost a lot of talent from those times. No one seems to have picked up on this to keep this entertainment going.
