Things that you would not do at home come naturally on the floor

3. Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen

Favorite dance: I'm sure this will come as a huge surprise - "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" from White Christmas

I've waxed eloquent on this one several times over and I'm not entirely sure you require hearing my enthusiasms yet again. Suffice it to say that this dance is so fun to watch; it makes me want to be Vera-Ellen and makes me yearn for a partner like Danny Kaye. They really are a tough tie with number 2 but (as I said in my last post on the subject) as I started writing number 3 and started saying "this is the sexiest dance ever and it's so incredibly amazing..." I realized that perhaps I should rearrange just a tad. It's a close second, (well, third) though.

Any guesses on number 2?


  1. The title caught my attention right away. ;) That is one of my favorite song and dance numbers in the film. One of my favorite dancing couples. Although Vera Ellen did a pretty darn good job with Donald O'Conner in Call Me Madam. He said that she was one of his favorite dancing partners. :)

  2. I love Danny and Vera! I'm so glad they're on your list (I was hoping they would be)!
