    Just, wow :eek:, love her style of dancing and the way she can pull moves off with such power/precision...

    I've not seen that particular video before apart from extracts for 'Broadway Melody of 1936' (another incredible performance, she's like a spinning top).. I'll try and find the part I'm chunnering on about...

    /sigh, those times looked so magical. Anyone got a one way ticket to the 30's? :)

    Actually, F.A. ( tho he never completely stated who was best ) made this comment about one of his many partners... After you dance with Cyd Charrise you stay danced ,and ,she danced more like a man !

    Not sure real life in the '30s was the same as in the movies ... and you can still watch the movies!
