Marsha, you're a little late.  Shutoo answered this last night, but this gives me a chance to post the video that I found.

 

 

The answer to Princess's post is "They All laughed".  It was done by Fred and Ginger in "Shall We Dance?" with music by the Gershwins.

 

Next:  "If a haircut could weaken Samson, they could murder me with a shave".
