What I've Been Watching Lately

Today all my videos have to do with my favorite moments from movies or television. So if you're not into classic musicals I suggest you skip todays post.

Dean Martin & Nancy Sinatra - Things
Dean Martin is by far my favorite singer of all time. I don't really care for Nancy Sinatra too much, but I've always loved this duet.

Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis - Hey Punchinello
I never liked any of the movies Jerry Lewis did without Dean Martin. I don't think there's 1 that I didn't like when they worked together. Best comedic team ever...

Fascinatin' Rhythm from Lady Be Good (1941)
This is a classic routine that is broken up into 3 parts. The first part features Connie Russell, who's a fine singer, but not very impressive after watching the next 2 parts. The 3 Berry Brothers come in at 3:06 and have some jaw dropping moves. The routine they did earlier in the movie was equally jaw dropping, if not better, but I couldn't find it anywhere online. Eleanor Powell comes in at 4:52, and does one of the best numbers of her fine career. Starts off a little slow, but has a big finish. Watching movies like this makes me wish MGM was still making quality musicals.

Judy Holliday - It's A Perfect Relationship
I didn't like Judy Holliday as an actress, but as a singer no complaints.

Best Of The Rest:

1. I got a little teared up when I first saw this scene from 'An American Tail'. It's just too cute. CLICK HERE FOR Somewhere Out There

2. I always refer to Tony Martin as the other Martin. He definately holds his own in this short clip though. CLICK HERE FOR Music In My Heart

3. Here's a Jerry Lewis number from the first of the Martin & Lewis movies 'At War With The Army'. CLICK HERE FOR Send A Salami
