Excuse me? May I have your attention for a moment?
... some of you don't have rythm - like Fozzy Bear in THE MUPPET SHOW
(he has a little help by Rowlf):
...others won't dance - like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire in ROBERTA (1935):
...or like Gordon MacRae in MOONLIGHT BAY (1951), are too cool and too smart to like songs.. :
(don't you just adore Doris Day in this???!?
It's one of my favourite films of hers..)
You all can go and vote at Dawn's SINGIN' AND DANCING BACK IN TIME - where Monty is doing the fabulous FAVORITE MUSICAL TOURNAMENT!!
Please go and vote for your favourite musicals!!
Be quick because Wednesday August 31 the first round about the 20s/30s musicals will end!
And to get into the right musical mood:
here we have Shirley MacLaine and Gene Kelly doing one of the best musical parodies I know
- it's from WHAT A WAY TO GO (1964)
- and I am very sorry that the picture quality isn't better..
Thank you all so very much for listening - and voting (?)
Yours (very well) and truly
Just by the way: the pictures I posted here are from German musical WIR MACHEN MUSIK (1942) (= We make music) - so they won't affect your decisions..
- the girl in the light-colored dress is Ilse Werner (famous for being able to whistle quite beautifully - remember the intro of WIND OF CHANGE by The Scorpions?? M-hm.. ) and the ~ very handsome *ahem* and quite funny ~ man is Georg Thomalla - who actually was the German voice of Jack Lemmon and Danny Kaye and some others, too ..
