Milburn Stone September 3, 2014 Share September 3, 2014 (edited) This phenomenal challenge dance scene from My Sister Eileen (1955) with Tommy Rall and Bob Fosse. The movie itself is worth seeking out - perfectly cast all around, and a charming score. Mind you, it's too bad that Hollywood never filmed the Bernstein version of the story, Wonderful Town, but this score is pretty close to being as good. What's really interesting is that the dance music in that sequence has more than a touch of Bernstein's On the Town about it. It's almost as if someone in Columbia's music department said, "Too bad we couldn't get the rights to Wonderful Town, but we can at least import a little ersatz Bernstein flavor into this dance number."
