First Movie SONG That Comes to Mind


Recommended Posts

Fred Astaire dancing to steam engines in the engine room of an ocean liner to the Gershwins song "Slap That Bass in 

"Shall We Dance".

 

Next: A song which a famous Flash Act performed to in a movie

(A Flash Act were two or more dancers who specialized, not just in movement, but also in acrobatics-- they didn't have taps on their shoes because they were NOT tap dancers.)

Princess...I don't have an answer, but was just wondering...is this considered a 'flash act' or a swing dance with gymnastic moves?

Shutoo-- A Flash Act is not jitterbugs. The best example I can give you without giving one away would be this:

The Nicholas Brothers are tap dancers who also do a Flash Act. A real Flash Act doesn't tap dance.  So  just imagine an act like The Nicholas Brothers  without Taps on their shoes and no tap dancing.  I hope I didn't really confuse you more.

The most famous Flash Act was The Berry Brothers and they worked at the most famous Studio, MGM.

(Thanks LP--  Weren't the Berry Brothers something else!)

The Bells of St. Mary's--  Bing Crosby sang it in the movie, but you can also hear it on Andy Williams's 2nd Christmas album: "Merry Christmas", 1965.

 

Next: A movie song that Nacio Herb Brown wrote Without Arthur Freed
