Nobody Flashes the Ritz: Do NOT Miss the Last One:

Nobody Flashes

I was having too much fun watching these: Various versions of the old classic: Puttin’ on the Ritz.

Notice, Michael Jackson is dancing with an ALL BLACK troop…and how long ago was this? And this was on TV? And you’ve been told black people never got enough jobs? Seriously? He was just a kid.

The next one is the master Fred Astaire, and the guy copying his moves does okay, but he can’t pick up the cane with his foot, (How did Fred DO THAT with his hand?) so he just skips that part and then he gets sloppy. NOBODY past or present could match Fred’s perfection.

Not to mention, sheer genius of creativity. He was a drummer at heart.

And… who knew Clark Gable could sing? LOOK at the face on that woman? Anybody know who she is? Priceless. What a look she give him. Cracks me up.

Clark’s voice is REALLY high…which from such a macho guy is really funny.

But, as far as a remake go, Herb Albert’s remake, can’t be beat. I think this was my favorite.

In fact, I’m going to watch it again.

It’s…excellent.

(P.S.) Taco’s was okay, but pretty boring so I didn’t post it, but you can find it on YouTube, where everybody thought TACO’s version and Gene Wilder’s version was better.

Poor saps.

Anyway…Enjoy!
