How beautifully Cyd Charisse performed to "One Alone " from The Desert Song. James Mitchell is in this scene, too, by the way. ;)

This could be fitting for either Mother's Day or Father's Day, but I think it's Irene Dunne who really makes the scene, so I'll go with Mother's Day.

My favorite scene from the wonderfully warped minds of Tim Burton and of Danny Elfman, who also happens to be the lead vocalist on this gem, The Remains Of The Day, from Corpse Bride.

Ted Neely gave a passionate performance as Jesus in the 1973 film version of the Broadway musical Jesus Christ Superstar. I saw him perform this role 30 years later on stage with a touring revival of the show. Amazingly, he sounded exactly the same.
