THE BEST & MY FAVORITE! Why?
Ann Miller, was/is, to me an "unsung vunderkind" actress, very humble, and seemingly to do her very best from start to finish to do her best to please her audience! Her laughter/smile, beauty - more natural than others, acting, singing and OF COURSE DANCING is great to behold! I sometimes wonder, if she were male, would she have gotten farther? In any case, I think she should be given more credit where credit is due, i.e. supporting roles - for ex: would Cyd Charisse have been "supporting" in Easter Parade, or as Biance in "Kiss Me Kate" - when she did MORE than singing, but also danced (of course, not singing like Grayson - but her dancing REALLY MADE THAT MOVIE!). Not mentioned in "Small Town Girl - not a big part, or even the "Roberta" remake w/Grayson & Keel (agin) "Lovely to Look At" - and probably at least one dance per film on the cutting room floor - I really think she was a "hoofer" of the caliber near Astaire and Kelley - perhpas not the choreographer (sp?), but certainly the dancer. I applaud her in the humble way she showed up for her interview(s) not all "re-done" (i.e. plastic sugery), and still acted humble, as well as when helping on "THATS ENTERTAINMENT III" - she didn't use much of that cutting room floor material often talked about - not even the rarely seen "dance scenes" from those 'B-movies' at Columbia. For use who learned tapping by seeing her, and her hero E.P in the 30's - another woman "hoofer" who (OMG) wore trousers - she will be remembered for years to come, and I await her tapes and more movies with her in them. She can do it all! Too bad she wasn't given the opportunities others were - then again, she could've ended up like Ms. Garland starting at her age. I guess it all ended up for the best - but ANNIE - I WILL REMEMBER YOU, as well as my children - FOREVER! RIP! (And, I hope there is a "dancing in heaven" as you surely will be THERE!
I have seen her movies just great, also my mother work at a plant in Califoria and help build the P-51 Mustangs and B-25's in World War 2 and love her movies.The American People at this time of era were outstanding My mom has a Victory Towel set and about everything in V for Victory My mom alos talk about the movie stars and what they also did for the fighting men of the United States of America. Thanks Jim Niemiec
Best Tap Ever!
I am a huge fan of Ann Miller. It's too bad that she didn't get the recognition that she deserved during her career. I would alsolove to see a DVD of all her movies.
She remains the all-Time best!
Ann Miller was a complete package and a great person. She never fails to bring smile to my face. Oh, to have one dance with her!
Fastest Feet in Hollywood!
It's wonderfl that Ann Miller has an entire day dedicated to her and her movies. Her talent and determination definitely makes her an icon in Hollywood and Broadway. She ranks right up there with dance greats like Astaire, Rogers, Kelly and Charisse.
SHE WAS GREAT!
she was a great dancer and singer and i think more people should notice just how great she really was
Queen of taps from the golden era
It's really hard to find older movies of ann miller. I think she was a fine actress, singer, and of course a fast tap dancer. Everytime i see her in easter parade, kiss me kate, or on the town i think of how much talent she had especially when she does her incredible tap numbers. I think they need to release all her movies she made on DVD. As well as dedicating a nite on tcm to ann miller and make a triubute to her and show all her movies. Hopefully those two ideas come true, but until then we will have to wait and see.
Queen of taps!
Ann Miller never got the recognition she deserved in my opinion, and I suggest everyone look for her in the many films she was in. For an exceptional example of one of her more hot numbers, I suggest viewing the routine she does in a little red outfit in Kiss Me Kate. Her energy on screen cannot be ignored, and her dancing was some of the best!
