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!

I think he really shined with Ginger, as in The Gay Divorcee, etc... That being said, I recently watched, what else, Easter Parade and Royal Wedding, and both were wonderful! He could practically do no wrong in my book.

It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
