The amazing golf ball dancing sequence!!!!!!!!, 26 Dec 2006
Look at Amazon's description of the whole movie and the other reviewers, I'm going to write about my favourite scenes!
My favourite scene in this movie is the 'golf ball dancing sequence!'
The track is called 'Loch Lomond Swing' - Chapter 5.
I've got this movie as part of The Fred And Ginger collection - volume 1.
About a year ago, my dad told me about this golf ball dancing sequence he'd seen several years ago, probably in 1987 when Fred Astaire died.
My dad really wanted to see this one sequence again, and I was interested to see it too!
I remember believing I'd found it when I first purchase 'Holiday Inn' which had the sequence called 'Puttin on the Ritz' in the special features section, it's on the film called 'Blue Skies' which is a region 1 film, my dvd player is multi-region so I'm able to play it!
This sequence has Fred using a walking stick as a golf club and hitting imaginary golf balls! I was disappointed when I'd gotten dad and mum to sit down and watch this finding out it wasn't the sequence dad was looking for but he enjoyed the 'Puttin on the Ritz' sequence anyway!
One evening I was trying to find out on the internet which film had this golf ball dancing sequence. Eventually I went onto Google and typed in something like 'Fred Astaire - golf ball dancing' and found it was on the film 'Carefree!' Which I was sure I'd already got!
And found this film on my Fred and Ginger collection!
I found the sequence, I was practically crying because I knew this must be what my dad was looking for!
This time I told dad I've found the sequence, last time I didn't tell him, I just got dad and mum to sit down to surprise them thinking Puttin on the Ritz was the right one!
Dad was thrilled to see this sequence again, and we watched it together twice! I had already watched a few times the night before, but I'm still obsessed with this one sequence alone!
Since this wonderful moment other friends have had the pleasure of seeing this sequence and there's more friends my dad wishes to watch it with in the future!
There's also a song called 'The Yam', Ginger Rogers starts singing it then Fred Astaire joins in, then the real dancing begins!
The best part of that song is near the end when Fred puts his leg on each table while Ginger jumps over it spinning round each other is continuous circles without stopping eight times! My dad watched this sequence recently about a week or two ago! He liked the dancing sequence but not so much the song, but I like both the song and the dancing!
I haven't watched the whole film all the way through yet, so this is only about my favourite parts.
I hope this review is helpful to you.
