Life Events


Movie Clip

Ship Ahoy (1942) -- (Movie Clip) I'll Take Tallulah Like many Eleanor Powell numbers, another suggesting she was the best dancer of her generation, devised by Billy Connolly, Bert Lahr and Red Skelton warbling, Tommy Dorsey's band, song by Burton Lane and Yip Harburg, clever bit for drummer Buddy Rich, in Ship Ahoy, 1942.
Ship Ahoy (1942) -- (Movie Clip) Hawaiian War Chant Opening, pretty much everybody showing off, the tune a Hawaiian pop standard, first Tommy Dorsey and the band, then drummer Buddy Rich and trumpeter Ziggy Elman, then Eleanor Powell as the fictional "Tallulah Winters," in Ship Ahoy, from producer Jack Cummings at MGM, co-starring Red Skelton.
For Me And My Gal (1942) -- (Movie Clip) Title Tune Vaudevillian Harry (Gene Kelly) pitching Jo (Judy Garland) on forming their own act, the famous song by George W. Meyer, Edgar Leslie and E. Ray Goetz, Busby Berkeley directing, in the 1942 hit from MGM's Arthur Freed unit, For Me And My Gal.
For Me And My Gal (1942) -- (Movie Clip) Where Do We Go From Here? A blitz of World War I era tunes, including Cohan's Over There, Judy Garland as Jo and Gene Kelly as Harry (with partner Ben Blue), entertaining the American troops in their now separate acts, in MGM's For Me And My Gal, 1942.
Broadway Melody Of 1940 (1940) -- (Movie Clip) I've Got My Eyes On You After the vocal piece of this not-too well-known Cole Porter song, Fred Astaire as hoofer "Johnny" in a famous number, secretly observed by just-friends Broadway star Clare (Eleanor Powell), in MGM's Broadway Melody Of 1940, 1940.
Broadway Melody Of 1940 (1940) -- (Movie Clip) Please Don't Monkey With Broadway Just established as a struggling duo working for free at a Broadway dance hall, Shaw and Britt (George Murphy and Fred Astaire) with a plucky introductory number with a Cole Porter original, early in MGM's Broadway Melody Of 1940, 1940.
Broadway Melody Of 1940 (1940) -- (Movie Clip) All Ashore Hoofer and would-be boyfriend Fred Astaire has hustled across Broadway to catch Clare (Eleanor Powell, her first scene) in her specialty number, tune by Roger Edens, early in MGM's Broadway Melody Of 1940, 1940, choreography by Bobby Connolly.
Broadway Melody Of 1940 (1940) -- (Movie Clip) I Concentrate On You The singing part of this Cole Porter number finished (with Douglas MacPhail, not seen), disguised Fred Astaire as "Johnny," standing in for an indisposed pal, joins Eleanor Powell as "Clare," in MGM's Broadway Melody Of 1940, 1940, directed by Norman Taurog.
