During the dance contest, Frannie is dancing with Marv in blue platform-soled shoes. But after they win the contest and go to the stage to collect their prize, a wide shot reveals that she is barefoot. Probably most of the actual dancing was done this way, rather than in those dangerous platform soles. See more »

If she can experience, I can experience.

You always stand like that?
Only when I feel my energy being drained. Standing on one leg doesn't allow the energy complete flow. You can lose it in the floor. Would you like to dance?
Yes! You would.

All Donna Summers scenes are great and funny. If you get a chance take a look at her FEET, she has the biggest feet I have seen on a woman. Maybe her shoes were to small or something but it's hilarious.
Donna steals the show when she sings the CLASSIC song "Last Dance" and leaves the Commadores looking a little flat.
One other moment in the movie is when Donna breaks into the DJ box and trys to sing on the microphone over the track playing. The song is another classic of hers "Love To Love You Baby".
Jeff Goldblum, Debra Winger and "Doris" from Fame are also thrown in the mix.
