I got an email from a good friend of mine. Many of you know and love the movie "Young Frankenstein" when the doctor has the monster dance to "Puttin on the Ritz"

Well, here's the original inspiration for that number. It's from a 1946 MGM movie with Fred Astaire called "Blue Skies." This is a typical Hollywood big dance number, and even though it's very 1940's, you have to admit, that sumbitch could really move. This is why Fred was considered the one of the best ever. Enjoy...PUTTIN ON THE RIIIIIIITZ!!!
