Just You Wait- My Fair Lady
It’s a damn shame she didn’t make more musicals. She was simply wonderful.
Awesome Musical Couple #2 (not in order of importance!):
In this clip, Dick Powell sings “The Shadow Waltz” to Ruby Keeler from a window in GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933 (1933). The end of this clip is just so adorable.
Also catch them in: 42ND STREET (1933), FOOTLIGHT PARADE (1933), DAMES (1934) and FLIRTATION WALK (1934).
My favorite song from hairspray
Indeed, it’s the best one! What talent!
