I would do my segment on a musical number but I wrote a rather long entry on Wednesday and I think that will just about suffice for right now. Today I'm just going to post up the poll results:
To sum up: The Thin Man poll didn't have too many votes but I was still pretty surprised by the outcome. Half of the votes were for the first Thin Man movie, but Another Thin Man and Thin Man Goes Home each got a vote. So thank you to those wonderful few who voted!
The Fred and Ginger dance poll had several more votes which is nice. The results are as follows:
"Pick Yourself Up" won with 5 votes
"Never Gonna Dance" came in second with 4 votes
"Let's Face the Music and Dance" got 3 votes
"Night and Day" and "Cheek to Cheek" both got 2 votes
"The Carioca," "Hard to Handle," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "Isn't This A Lovely Day," "The Piccolino," "Let Yourself Go," "Waltz in Swing Time," "They All Laughed," "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off," "Shall We Dance," and "Bouncing the Blues" all got 1 vote each.
"I Won't Dance (Reprise)" and "The Continental" didn't get any votes. The latter rather surprises me because it won an Oscar for Best Song. I'm not sure if the lack of votes has to do with the duo getting better in their later movies or the fact that the dance is about 10 minutes long with only 2 or 3 minutes dedicated to Fred & Ginger. Thoughts?
There's another poll up so don't forget to vote: would you pick the Crooner or the Comic in White Christmas?
