And finally, we’ll close out by returning to Donald O’Connor to enjoy the fine, fine, fine, Make ‘Em Laugh. Once again, from Singin’ in the Rain.
O’Connor (who was a chain smoker) had to be hospitalized for a week after filming this number (due to exhaustion and carpet burns), but a fire destroyed the footage so he gamely did it all over again. That’s dedication.
So there we have it, dance fun all around.
Happy Birthday, K.
