  1. I have never quite gotten the allure of Ruby Keeler - she gave off more warmth than Eleanor Powell, but Powell is clearly the superior dancer. Keeler always struck me as being kind of doughy and klutzy; an acolyte of the Joan Crawford School of Dance. In fact, she almost wrecks the fabulous “Shanghai Lil” number in “Footlights Parade” for me — luckily, James Cagney more than makes up for her off-the-beat ineptitude. Powell uses her whole body in her dancing and has some of the whippet-like grace and fluidity of Astaire.
