And Now For Something Astounding

This is a clip of the Nicholas brothers from Stormy Weather. Fred Astaire said it was the best piece of dancing ever captured on film. Who's going to argue with Fred? Not me. The part where they jumped over each other on the stairs was done in one take. Get ready for your jaw to drop.



You're welcome.

(The man they slap hands with in the beginning is Cab Calloway.)

What athleticism. And no steroids or other illegal drugs used to make them so.

I LOVE this! Fred was totally right! :-)

Absolutely, Sue. With each new movie they did, they tried to do just a little more. It's amazing some of the dance moves they did in their films.

Glad you enjoyed it, Lexa. :)
