A You Tube find – Classic Hollywood Dance To The Bruno Mars Beat!

A terrific montage of classic Hollywood entertainers over a terrific Bruno Mars beat!

I don’t scroll around on You Tube that much, to be honest. When researching for my Significant Songs posts, I recently came across this exceptionally clever short clip, with famous dancers and actors ‘performing’ to a modern song, ‘Uptown Funk’, by Bruno Mars. It is so well-edited, and contains a real feast of stars from the heyday of Hollywood. I couldn’t resist sharing it here.

Astaire and Rogers.
Moira Shearer.
Cyd Charisse.
Judy Garland.
Mickey Rooney.
Lucille Ball.
The Clark Brothers.
Shirley Temple.
Gene Kelly.
The Marx Brothers.
The Three Stooges.
Laurel and Hardy.
James Cagney.
Danny Kaye.
Rita Hayworth.
Donald O’Connor.
And many more…

See if you can spot the names I missed!

This is a real treat, believe me.
