The Worst Thing In A Movie!!

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, when you are watching a movie, you are faced with a fact that you cannot really believe.

Some of them are bad, some are outstandingly bad.

But on Monday, I was faced with one that I really didn't want to believe.

In the truly bad screen version of "On Your Toes", which had almost nothing to do with the famous Broadway musical hit, beginning actor, Edddie Albert, who could barely dance, was forced to dance opposite famed ballerina, Vera Zorina, in the muscial's famed ballet, "Slaughter On Tenth Avenue".

It was so painful to watch.

I felt sorry for Vera Zorina.

I felt sorry for Eddie Albert.

And I knew that, for me, I had inadvertently stumbled into REALLY BAD MOVIEMAKING.

INSANE MOVIEMAKING.

It could not get any lower.

Has anybody here had a similar experience?

Aww, that wasn't so bad as you made it sound. :lol: Tho it got pretty dumb at the end there. The close-up of his dancing legs at 9:50 looked too skillful to be Eddie Albert. I zoomed back to see if there was a clear edit to that shot, but it was even better than that. You can actually see the shadow of the phantom dancer jump in from a different angle! Nice.

"Green Acres is the place for me . . ."

Actually, I thought the future Oliver Wendell Douglas did a pretty plucky job here. A lot of dramatic posing rather than real dancing, I know, combined with a bit of leap over the bar top stunt work, too. Considering the fact that Eddie is no dancer, I give him a B+ for effort.

Y'know, there's too many choices for "worst thing in a movie".  like----

TONY CURTIS doing that pathetic CARY GRANT impression in "Some Like It Hot";

DICK VAN DYKE's Cockney "accent" in "Mary Poppins"!  

and another for me----

ADOLPHE MENJOU.....   :D

Ted Healy - what an unfunny comic and overall nasty man! He was the highest paid comic in the country during the late 20s/early 30s, making upwards of $30,000 per week! But he paid 'his' Three Stooges $100 per week... split three ways!

Good thing The Boys decided to split from that knucklehead due to his abusive nature, violent alcoholism and refusal to pay them a fair share of the proceeds.

Healy is long dead and long forgotten, but The Three Stooges are as popular as ever! 🤣🤣🤣
