Iconic team Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance to Irving Berlin’s Let Yourself Go in Follow The Fleet (1936).
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.
The co-collector has asked for this one daily since we first watched it, and it’s pretty clear as to why — it’s probably about the best dance routine I’ve ever seen.
And I’m not the only one who thinks that: Fred Astaire once called this performance “the greatest dance number ever filmed.” Mikhail Baryshnikov said, “Those guys are perfect examples of pure genius.”
