Fred Astaire Friday

In "The Barkleys of Broadway" (1949), the opening dance number was obscured by the opening credits, much to the chagrin of Astaire and Rogers fans.

In 1994, "That's Entertainment III" unearthed a copy without the credits.

The narrator is the late actress and dancer, Ann Miller.

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
