klloomis replied to joannem's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSI love Eleanor Powell, so I might be a little biased, but.... I think Powell seems more experienced and is definitely lighter on her feet. More polished. Keeler is much heavier. Keeler always seemed more like a little pixie to me. I enjoyed watching her. She seemed much more innocent. But to watch a dancer. It's always been Powell. She was amazing.
Oh boy, that’s a tough one. Give me a musical with Eleanor Powell. I just love to watch her dance. She is incredible! The first musical that I fell in love with was My Fair Lady. I loved the costumes and the chemistry between the characters. And, of course, the music. I think I saw it twenty times. Then Gigi. I also love quirky musicals like Godspell. I guess I like them all. Lol
