Miss Riley is fab, as is the interpretive dance.

  1. The choreography strikes me as rather Fosse-esque. Considering that he had worked with Bing Crosby before, I wonder if he had anything to do with this, of if it just shows the extent of his influence.

  2. When the camera panned over to Jeannie C. I seriously thought she was a cardboard cutout till she opened her mouth. Now I'm completely freaked out!

  4. FABULOUS IN BIG LETTERS, but that is the ugliest dress ever to grace a female form.

  5. I'm always wary when choreography involves chairs.

  6. When the "daughter" makes her first appearance it's just freaky.

  7. Oooh! Do you recognize "Mrs. Taylor"?
    It's Bebe Neuwirth! (Lilith from Fraser)

  8. That was my thought, too, Boff. It sure looks like her! But Ms. Neuwirth is far to young to have done this, of course.

  9. Those were the Buddy Schwab Dancers. Buddy was the house choreographer for the Hollywood Palace.

    Bebe would have been 9 at this time so it must be her older sister, Cece....or Dede...or Fifi.
