Us that were born post-war tend to forget that some of our 50's heroes had prior talents, and that is just the case with Buddy Ebsen. He was so much a part of my childhood and since, yet hear he is hoofing it with Judy Garland back in 1938 - wow! This film is one of the all-time greats, so if you like a foot-tappin' memorable sequence - just watch Buddy and Judy. You will never forget it!
