I can imagine Chevy Chase as Siegfried, but Albrecht? Nah! Maybe as Hilarious...I mean Hilarion.

Someone mentioned Vivien Leigh earlier. Tonight I saw a clip from an early movie whose title I didn't catch, but it was with Charles Laughton. In this scene, he surprises her while she's doing some chaine turns (not very well, but she obviously had some idea how to do them, and was spotting). When she stopped, her 1930's bias-cut, clingy skirt showed what appeared to be some quite balletic-looking thigh development.

I loved the movement qualities of Danny Kaye. He was one of the most natural dancers I've ever seen. Fabulous legs, too!

djb, that was "St. Martin's Lane" (1938), a British movie with Vivien Leigh and Charles Laughton. For its U.S. release, the film was retitled "Sidewalks of London".

I can see Angela Bassett and Cecily Tyson dancing for Alvin Ailey.
I can imagine either one of them dancing Cry in that gorgeous white dress.

How about Al Gore?

Quote:
Parallels in their political lives
They were vice presidents and narrow losers who later quit. One became president.

Dick Polman, Philadelphia Inquirer

In the late '80s and early '90s, he vowed to display his real self. He goofed on himself ("Al Gore is so stiff, the racks buy the suits off of him"), he hired a ballet choreographer to teach him how to relax, and Tipper put out the word that her man was a sucker for America's Funniest Home Videos.

Jet Li of martial arts movie fame (Lethal Weapon 4, Romeo Must Die, etc) would have made an incredible dancer. He would dance with that tiger like stance and ferocity that I have heard Nureyev possesed. Of course, he would have to kick all the company dancers asses now and again. It would still be worth it. Once again, Ballet would sell more tickets if people could gamble on it. Or better yet, if people died!!!!!

I agree that Danny Kaye would have been great. Has anyone seen him in the film "The Court Jester"? It was my first introduction to Danny Kaye and I think it is one of my all-time favourite films.

He wears tights in it too!

I always have tears running down my face in the "Vessel with the pessel" scene. I too love this movie.

They broke the vessel with the pestle!

Now the pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon. The chalice from the palace has the brew that is true!
