With all that's going on in the news today that's bringing us down, this should provide a nice break from that. Someone took a lot of time to edit this but watching it is well worth your time.
I’d hit it.
Totally enjoyed the vid and a great 5 minutes of distraction.
The purple jump suit is hot.
Wow, that was fantastic !! The editing on that video was terrific and boy could she dance, she’s cuter than all get-out too. Say want you want about the Bee Gees but even the most hardened lumberjack get’s his jig on when that tune comes on the air.
Thanks man, very cool.
For a few moments I was transported to a simpler time, when sailor suits were in fashion.
That was GREAT!
Incredible video! WOW! Just...WOW!
Perfectly edited in rhythm with the song. Really amazing.
I’ve always thought Rita Hayworth was smokin’ hot. A pure beauty that can dance like nobody’s business.
What a woman... wow.
Rita Hayworth was GOR-GEE-OUS!! Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly pretty good too.
bump for those that missed this ...
Great video. Thanks ;o)
Holding her own with Fred she’s in pretty good company.
At the age of 54 she was so addled by alcohol and pre-Alzheimers, that she couldn't remember lines for a movie. So they filmed her, one line at a time.
What a train wreck.
Now you gone and done it. I once swore I would never listen to that song again. I did. And I enjoyed it, thanks to Rita.
And what a beauty she was. I think I have every movie of hers in that video.
And to think we have had Lady Gaga, Madonna and their ilk foisted on us!
very cool video
I showed the video to a friend and that was her response after watching it.
I thought “Gosh, it was a great video”....
It is also said that she had a disdain for fans like few others in Hollywood then or now. A genuine autograph of hers is worth a fortune, because she hated signing them, and felt no guilt telling people NO.
(Sigh...) Tap pants. I wish women would wear that classic style again these days.
One of my all time favs is Donald O'Connor.
I am still amazed to this day by his bit from "Singing In the Rain" to the tune of Make 'Em Laugh check out this vid and pay close attention at about 3:29 Donald O'Connor - Make 'em Laugh
Incredible! Somebody must have had an ear worm while watching old movies.
Thanks for sharing! I have it up, playing it over and over again, in between Rush.
Rita Hayworth - truly immortal!
That puts all the current dancing shows to shame. Grace and flow with costumes that are sensual but not slutty.
There are some women who can make all others in their presence simply disappear from view. This was one of them.
She had a tragic life and it is amazing how she could be so vivacious in spite of it all. I guess drugs or alcohol can work for awhile. The price is paid early and the end comes terribly though.
Fabulous. Thanks for posting.
Thanks for posting
I do remember reading that Donald O’Connor was such a heavy smoker that he had to be hospitalized after shooting that scene due to exhaustion. Definitely an all-time classic.
W O W!! That was pure fun! :)
My gosh! That was quite a feat of athleticism. I was exhausted just watching it.
This is great!!!!!!!
Cuttin’ a rug!
It is pure art!
It is brilliant!
Everyone that loves music understands the self-evident truth of that statement.
She was a real knock out.
That was fun to watch!!
WOW! Amazing editing!
Astaire dancing to Michael Jackson..this is great great editing
“Stars are ageless’’— Gloria Swanson aka ‘’Norma Desmond,’’ “Sunset Boulevard’’. Seventy years on and Rita Hayworth’s star is still burning bright. I always thought she was one of, if not the most beautiful and talented actresses from the Golden Age of Hollywood. This is a brilliant video with spot-on editing and a smart choice of music. The Bee Gees ‘’Stayin’ Alive’’ was the right choice because the tempo is so straight forward. As a former drummer I can tell you that even if you aren’t ‘’musical’’ all you have to do is count ‘’1 and 2 and 3 and 4 ‘’ through the whole number you’ll fall in right on the beat.
The Hollywood ladies today should look at women back in the 40s for class.
The women back then were ooozing sex without showing a lot of skin.
Amazing! Angelina Jolie, Reese Withspoon and Kate Hudson don’t quite measure up (official thread boob joke), but I know Laz would him ‘em.
Fantastic! This video deserves to go viral. So many peoples day would be brightened by seeing this. I know mine was! :)
That was fun! Thanks for posting. What an awesome editing job.
Every now and then something comes up on yootoob which is really worth watching. This is one of them, thanks for posting!
I’m absolutely amazed. I had no idea that song had been used in so many movies. :=)
