Noreen Corcoran sings “Life Has Its Funny Little Ups And Downs” to Donald O’Connor from the 1953 movie, I Love Melvin. Not only does it feature this catchy little song, but it includes Donald tap dancing on his roller skates, which starts up and ends… perhaps not down, but definitely with a smash.

Some of the best dancing from the archives: phenomenal swing and lindy hopping, the Haka Dance and, of course, the not-to-be-missed Nicholas Brothers.
