4th of July and Fred Astaire Fridays

In honor of Independence Day in the United States, I am beginning a new tradition, to last for as long as I find relevant YouTube vids to post on the subject.

Welcome to Fred Astaire Friday. For the first Fred Astaire Friday, I want to post a dance number that I have just become aquainted with.

This is called Let's Say it With Firecrackers from the movie "Holiday Inn" (aka: White Christmas). Astaire, apparently uses actual explosives to accompany him in this dance number.

Enjoy! And happy 4th!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
