Fred Astaire & Rita Hayworth - 'The Shorty George'
Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth dance 'The Shorty George' in the 1942 movie 'You Were Never Lovelier' - now colorized and remastered in 4k.
"You Were Never Lovelier" is a 1942 musical romantic comedy film starring Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth.
The film is set in what was one of Hollywood's favorite locales at the time, Buenos Aires, and also features Xavier Cugat
and his Orchestra to add to the Latin flavor of this memorable musical.
The studio meant to film in color, but it was deemed too expensive to do so.
The Shorty George is a classic dance move that appears in Solo Jazz and Lindy Hop.
The name derives from the African-American Lindy Hop dancer “Shorty” George Snowden (4 July 1904 – May 1982)
who devised the step to add comedy to his Lindy Hop dancing.
Viewer comment: "It is fabulous seeing “The Shorty George” number from “You Were Never Lovelier” with the ravishing Rita Hayworth and how it might have looked in color."
