Since I'm rather new to the message boards, I'm not sure what you are referring to, Johnm. Perhaps you can explain it to me. I'm loving being a part of this, since I'm a movie lover from way back. Thanks, Johnm.;

You know what, Terrence? It just doesn't matter. It's just something from the past, and it doesn't matter. Enjoy your time here, and keep enjoying movies. Your pick is a good one. Who wouldn't want to dance with Vera-Ellen?!

If I could dance in any movie musical I would choose "On Your Toes"

the Vera Zorina part only because I think 'Slaughter On 10th Avenue' is the

most beautiful music ever....

(Best composers of the 20th Century..Richard Rogers and George Gershwin)

If you are just talking about writing music, I would agree that it's Rodgers. If you are talking music AND lyrics, it's definitely Cole Porter. He had a staggering amount of talent.

I, personally, prefer Jerry Herman and Frank Loesser over Cole Porter, for words and music guys; but I certainly appreciate Porter's talent. *High Society* and *Anything Goes* (60s version) are favorites of mine.

THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN or 42ND STREET would be my choice. Can't decide which one. Although MOLLY BROWN's choreography is a lot harder. Maybe 42ND STREET is the way to go.

Easy one..... I'd love to have been in the chorus for "Pass That Peace Pipe" from the glorious *Good News.* This is hands down one of the great production numbers and features Joan McCracken and Ray McDonald. A superb number.

I would have loved to been around and dance in the chorus number of Broadway Melody in Singing In the Rain. While watching the dvd I try to follow the steps in my living room without knocking down lamps etc. I had the opportunity to recreate in a talent show Couple of Swells from Easter Parade. I played Fred and my partner of course was Judy. We did a fairly good "re-creation" of it. The steps were easy enough to follow and we brought the house down. That is the closest I ever got to doing an actual movie musical dance,
