Rita Hayworth Is Stayin' Alive (Video)
You Tube ^ | October 20, 2010

Posted on 04/11/2012 9:27:29 AM PDT by murron

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.


TOPICS: Music/Entertainment

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.

Thank you for posting this. I didn't know she could dance like that. Fred Astaire is great for an old man.

For a few moments I was transported to a simpler time, when sailor suits were in fashion.

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.

Rita Hayworth was GOR-GEE-OUS!! Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly pretty good too.

I read up a little on Hayworth. She had a horrid life.

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.

Totally true.

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.

Thanks for posting! I love to watch the Old Masters dance like Fred Astair and Gene Kelly and Ginger Rogers Etc.

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

Amazing.

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.

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.

I think this was done by an artist (either a professional videographer or an up-and-comer). It is one of those things that, when studied again and again, gets better with each viewing.

It is pure art!

It is brilliant!

BTW, as someone who appreciates modern art (i.e. not necessarily just a purdy picture)...I was taught to study a piece by repetition or repetitive viewing, reading, hearing, etc. Repetitive study of a work of art will either cause that piece to grow or to dwindle. True art grows to the sublime...imitation and trash peters out quickly.

Everyone that loves music understands the self-evident truth of that statement.

“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.
