Cujas, you're back! Please don't stay away so long. Yes, It's Lyda (pronounced Lee - da) Roberti. She died of a heart attack at age 31. Here is her picture.

I hope that you're back to stay, cujas. Like the song says, "I've missed you like crazy". It's your turn now.

Sluefoot, this is the Games And Trivia forum where we ask and answer questions. Did you have a trivia question to pose? if not, I invite you to go to the Forum Home screen, scroll down to the Genre Forums, and select Musicals. I believe that your post probably belongs there.

And this is a tap musical about a tap choreographer who is drafted into the army. Can you name the tap dancer in the musical. And why not throw in the composer of the musical ok?

This is a tap musical where one male tap dancer is mistaken for another male tap dancer. Can you name the two male tap dancers and the name of the movie?

Marsha-- it doesn't get any better than this--The Broadway melody of 1940 starred three great tap dancers--Eleanor Powell was my favorite & the top-billed tap dancer here.

 

The other two that you're referring to who got mixed up in the plot were- - Fred Astaire and George Murphy. Eleanor was confused as to which was which. But it didn't take her too long to figure out which one was the better tap dancer. So Ellie ends up tap dancing the finale was Fred Astaire.

Princess,

 

You're oh so right. One of the greatest tap routines ever Begin The Beguine with Fred Astaire and the remarkable Eleanor Powell.

 

Your turn.

This next tap musical is truly a cutie. My favorite tap number in it is the tap dancing doorman tapping with a sweet little girl.

 

Can you name the movie and the two tap dancers?

Star-- Bojangles is our greatest tap dancer. We're not allowed to forget him.

Of course, he dances with his little protege Shirley Temple in this movie. He taught her well.

 

And now Star, can you flap ball-change to the next question?

I believe I can, Princess.

 

In this musical, a star who was famous for her singing did not sing one note in the musical finale, but instead did a tap dance with another performer.  Can you name the tapping duo and the movie?

Getting closer.  You got the singing star right, Marsha, but not the dancing partner or movie.  Remember I said that she doesn't sing a note in the big musical finale of the picture, but does a little tap dance with someone.

You know, I really thought this would be pretty easy, but I guess I was wrong.  

 

While it's true that she certainly did dance in the finale of Presenting Lily Mars, she did also sing and the dancing she did wasn't of the tap variety.  Here's a hint that I think should do the trick:

 

It was her first MGM feature film and her dancing partner would have a very successful sitcom many years later.
