great dances
15 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are some wonderful dances on these two disks, NOT cut because they were in any way inferior material, but for other less admirable reasons. Well worth getting if you're a dance fan. I forget which are one each disk, but there are: (1) Bill "Bojangles" Robinson's two dances deleted from "Cafe Metropole". Fox promised to give him a chance to really show what he could do when not dumbing down his dancing to spotlight Shirley Temple, then double crossed him and cut the scenes from the film, apparently afraid that America still wasn't ready to acknowledge mature black talent. The tap scene is classic Bojangles, elegant and precise. But the other scene ... oh brother! he does a tap "Apache" dance (that 40s dance form where the man tosses the woman around the stage)! The combination of forms doesn't really work that well, but is worth watching just for its uniqueness. (2) The original "Shiek of Araby" scene from "Tin Pan Alley", cut because the Hayes office thought the costumes were too revealing. Since the movie isn't currently available for viewing in any form one can't tell how much remains in the released version, but the outtakes are (a) the original harem scene with those scanty see-through costumes (tame by modern standards), a decent production type number, (b) the Nicholas Brothers dancing as djinns: classic high-energy tap in their usual style (but without their usual tuxedos) (c) Betty Grable & Alice Faye also teasingly clad singing "Shiek of Araby" with Jack Oakie - fun! (3) Ginger Rogers doing a high energy charleston. I forget what it was cut from - maybe Roxie Hart? - but it shows off her dancing skill. (4) Betty Grable dance outtakes from "Springtime in the Rockies". She could also dance better than she's given credit for.
