A You Tube find

I don’t scroll around on You Tube that much, to be honest. When researching for my Significant Songs posts, I recently came across this exceptionally clever short clip, with famous dancers and actors ‘performing’ to a modern song, ‘Uptown Funk’, by Bruno Mars. It is so well-edited, and contains a real feast of stars from the heyday of Hollywood. I couldn’t resist sharing it here.

Astaire and Rogers.
Moira Shearer.
Cyd Charisse.
Judy Garland.
Mickey Rooney.
Lucille Ball.
The Clark Brothers.
Shirley Temple.
Gene Kelly.
The Marx Brothers.
The Three Stooges.
Laurel and Hardy.
James Cagney.
Danny Kaye.
Rita Hayworth.
Donald O’Connor.
And many more…

See if you can spot the names I missed!

This is a real treat, believe me.

  1. Fabulous! I love those old movies and it’s very well done (I can’t resist if I ever catch one of these old movies on the telly, although they seem to show them a bit less often than before these days. I remember going to the gym at some point in the Christmas season a few years back and watching old musicals while on the treadmill. It was fabulous!)
