    1. She was quite fabulous. But don't fret, honey -- you are, too!

  3. The song is too Broadway-type glossy to have girls gyrating as if they're on a teen-pop show like "Shindig". If this had been choreographed as more of a musical-ensemble number, they might've taken the time to hire people who could dance. The first 40 seconds features a safety gay who did double-duty as a nerd, lol. It's like they told him "your dancing is so shitty, we want you to be the last one to leave the camera-shot so everyone can see just how bad you dance." And doesn't the woman the nerd's dancing with (in the red blouse) look eerily like Dorothy Dandridge in "Carmen Jones"?

    1. In other words, it's a typical Scopitone!
