Movie Clip

Party Girl (1958) - He's Out There Again Mob lawyer Farrell (Robert Taylor) gets an eye-full of Vicki (Cyd Charisse) in hot pink for her first dance number in Nicholas Ray's Party Girl, 1958, choreography by Robert Sidney.
Sombrero (1953) - Gypsy Dance Maybe the high point in the quasi-Mexican romantic-drama-musical from producer Jack Cummings at MGM, Cyd Charisse as gypsy maiden Lola must purge a guilt complex before she can marry suitor Ruben (Rick Jason), with a Hermes Pan dance to a Saul Chaplin tune in a costume by Helen Rose, in Sombrero, 1953.
Ziegfeld Follies (1946) - Black Cats Second part of the first big production number, Vincente Minnelli directing and indications that producer Arthur Freed gave his creatives (Helen Rose costumes, design by Cedric Gibbons et al) a pretty free hand, Lucille Ball silent but, what would she say? In Ziegfeld Follies, 1946.
Designing Woman (1957) - You Have To Know Mike Establishing the narration that will continue throughout, Mike (Gregory Peck), Marilla (Lauren Bacall), Lori (Dolores Gray), Zachary (Tom Helmore) and Maxi (Mickey Shaughnessy) address the camera, opening Vincente Minnelli's Designing Woman, 1957.
Torch Song (1953) - I'll Never Be Lonely Broadway musical star Jenny (Joan Crawford) at home with her trusted assistant Anne (Maidie Norman), having stormed off the rehearsal set for her new show earlier that day in general protest, running some ironic lines, in Joan’s MGM comeback, Torch Song, 1953.
Designing Woman (1957) - You're Going To Bite Me Narrating and wearing borrowed pants, Mike (Gregory Peck) discovers the posh apartment of his new wife Marilla (Lauren Bacall), when a surprise party ensues, in Vincente Minnelli's Designing Woman, 1957.
Designing Woman (1957) - My Character First hung-over Mike (Gregory Peck) narrating then Marilla (Lauren Bacall) taking over, rocking a yellow one-piece in Beverly Hills, their first meeting seen by the audience, in Vincente Minnelli's Designing Woman, 1957.
Ziegfeld Follies (1946) - Glorifying Girls William Powell as the late Florenz Ziegfeld, imagining the show he would stage, throwing to pal Fred Astaire, into "Here's To The Girls" by Roger Edens and producer Arthur Freed, mostly featuring ballet and the thin, young Cyd Charisse, in MGM's Ziegfeld Follies, 1946.
