In an epic, toe-tapping mashup that’s sure to make you want to get up and dance, some of Hollywood’s most legendary actresses, also known for their enviable fancy footwork – Shirley Temple, Ginger Rogers, Eleanor Powell, Judy Garland, Ruby Keeler, Rita Hayworth, Ann Miller, Debbie Reynolds, Cyd Charisse – get down to Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson with Bruno Mars. Wow… could these women (and men) move!
The video features clips from 66 movies from the Golden Age – meaning no title later than 1953 – and none of which was sped up or slowed down. There is one clip from 1976 featuring the legendary Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire… and it’s a perfect closer.
Mixing entertainment with altruism, Nerd Fest UK, who spent three weeks putting this awesome mashup together, wrote on YouTube, “If you like this video, please support these film preservation charities: The George Eastman Museum, The Film Foundation, The British Film Institute.
