Ten year old Shari Robinson is the most co-ordinated dancer for her age I have ever seen. Shirly Temple is only a clod hopper compared to Shari. She was always perfect. I wonder why she did not make it big as she aged. She had the beauty, the voice, the personality to make it big. Does anyone know what happened to her? Dan Daily is a great dancer. I can forgive the black face, given the era. Dan, in my opinion is one of the very few really tall dancers who can pull it off. Most dancers, like Gene Kelly, are rather short. I have saved to my TIVO the last few minutes in which Shari and Dan do such a wonderful dance. I can play it over and over. The way they toss the walking cane back and forth is a miracle.
