More wonderful TAP by the Berry Brothers & Eleanor Powell
The fabulous tap dance and flash styling of the Berry Brothers is complimented by Eleanor Powell's beautiful tap and acrobatics. The Berry Brothers have never gotten the credit they deserved. Their artistry is something that has not been duplicated all these years later. From Tap Dance, Spins, Cane work to handsprings into splits, these men did it all! In this movie Eleanor Powell demonstrates she was one of the few women who genuinely deserved the solo spot in tap dancing. Musicals like this are sorely missed in today's entertainment. In the days this movie was produced, special effects, computer graphics couldn't take the place of talent. Truly a treasure of tap dance history. A must see for any tap enthusiast!!!
