I Dood It!!!

>I'll see it more for Eleanor's cut number. What film was it from, do you know?

 

It came from BROADWAY MELODY OF 1938. Not sure if the whole number was cut from the earlier film, or if this is recycled material with a little bit of additional footage picked up off the cutting room floor.

 

It is her tap solo to "Got a Pair of New Shoes," a tune that was also used in THOROUGHBREDS DON'T CRY with Judy Garland.

In addition, Time Magazine's review of "Broadway Melody of 1936" noted that the film "...confirms her status as the world's greatest female tap dancer...."

Well it appears being the greatest female tap dancer didn't lead to her having much of a film career. 

 

She might of had a better film career if she was just a very good tap dancer but she had a more dynamic screen persona.
