Found this on youtube today.  Its true I think, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, well in the case of Michael Jackson imitating Fred Astaire, it comes from a point of total respect imho.

Can't believe I wasn't a member of this group already.  I've been a huge Fred Astaire fan for nearly as long as I can remember!

Read an interesting article about him and his dancing today.  Here's the link ...

Here's a reminder...With Easter coming up, it's the perfect time to watch Easter Parade. :)

I love those pics and her outfits...specially the scarf. So chic!

The Man Ray Movie Challenge: Caesar and Cleopatra (1945)

To view Caesar and Cleopatra click here. In 1951, surrealist artist Man Ray, who was a fan of the cinema, quipped, “The worst films I have ever seen, the ones that put me to sleep, contain ten or fifteen marvelous minutes. The best films I have ever seen only contain ten or fifteen worthwhile ones.” […]

To view Shoot First, Die Later click here. Here’s how I’d pitch Fernando Di Leo’s Shoot First, Die Later (1974) to any of my friends: If you’d like to see a gritty Italian crime movie that evokes The French Connection (1971) and surely influenced Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, look no further than this grim […]
