The Post an Interesting Pic thread

 Geoffrey Holder, The Tall Man in the white suit on the left, was a great contemporary dancer.  His versatility earned him a Tony Award for directing and doing the costume design for the original production of "The Wiz" on Broadway.

 Bernadette Peters, to the front row on the right, is known as an actress and a singer. But she's also an excellent tap dancer-- having co-starred with Joel Grey in George M Cohan's "George M." on Broadway.

Don't forget Geoffrey Holder as Baron Samedi in the James Bond film "Live and Let Die" (1973)

Still remember seeing Bernadette Peters for the first time in her earliest dancing scene in "The Carol Burnett Show".  Her co dancers were dressed up in  comical English Bobbie outfits.  

Sorry can't find a photo of that. 

One of her skits.

I heard on the radio the other day that Bernadette Peters was the first guest star Carol Burnett signed on for her new variety show back in the 1960s (but not the first guest on the first episode).  Bernadette was 19 and appearing off-Broadway in "Dames at Sea" and Carol saw her in that show.   Also quoted in this story:

https://nypost.com/2020/05/29/carol-burnett-takes-a-deep-dive-into-her-classic-cbs-variety-show/

The first guest honors went to her good friend Jim Nabors, who was always on the first episode of every season during its 11 season run.

The photo above is from episode 20 in season 7 (aired 16 Feb 1974) and is taken from the recurring sketch "As the Stomach Turns", a parody of soap operas.  This particular story line, though, parodies The Exorcist, as Peters plays a possessed girl.

Whenever speaking of him and see a puzzled look, I could refer to him as the 7Up "Cola Nut" guy:

Sadly, forgotten today. He was a treasure, can't take my eyes off him.

Did he say "Semun Up?" maybe there is no V in their language. My neighbors are from the Caribbean and I can't understand a word they say!

I remember that Uncola commercial.

The ways the company tried to sell their product...hospital use? :blink:

Great photo from Dancing Lady.       In the poster it is Ted Healy and his Stooges.   Larry plays it straight as a pianist. 

  (and what an outfit for Joan,  sure sign of a pre-code film!).

Took so little of it.

Ironically his last name  Schreck in German means fright or scare.

Just learned some trivia on TCM, the Maltese Falcon here was made of solid lead and weighed about 50 pounds which was dropped by accident  on Humphrey Bogart's toe   OUCH!!

I have an early (ca 1970) plaster casting of the Black Bird used in the movie and it weighs over 25lbs, plenty heavy to break a toe.  It's hard for me to believe a 50 lb film prop would be made or used on set. I lift 50 lb bags of feed all the time and can't imagine having to schlep that kind of weight and ACT without straining, losing my breath.

Here's my photo:

Love this photo! Since it is Basil Rathbone and Angela Lansbury, it must have been during filming of The Court Jester (1955). It's great seeing a princess eating a burger and fries.

Correct! Basil's blouse & hair make him look like a man in drag-oh the indignities!
