Highly interesting special feature
24 April 2004 | by directortomSee all my reviews

Viewing this special feature hosted by Ann Miller sets up the greatest musical finale ever filmed and features a breathtaking tap duo by Eleanor Powell and Fred Astaire. It is clear from the outset that Mrs. Miller, perhaps a near match of Mrs. Powell in screen appeal as well as talent, absolutely adores the presentations by Eleanor Powell in this and other films. As she recounts, Eleanor's dazzling ability is ever the match to Fred's matchless skills and tap technique. If there was ever an exact eveness of of dancing abilities and showmanship, it is highlighted in this wonderful finale to "Broadway Melody of 1940". Although there are ample examples of this duo's other dance skills in the movie, all lead to the finale. It is highly doubtful if there will ever be another tap couple who make impossible moves so much fun to watch over and over again. Lovers of musicals and dancing must add this new DVD offering to their libraries as a selection that will never be duplicated.
