Hi Jim!

I loved seeing this picture. Yes, if you watch "A Day At The Races" you will see some of the best jitterbugging I've ever seen onscreen. I think today's couples are too much into glamour and looking good (in addition to mastering a particular dance/usually ballroom). To watch the folks in this movie is to get caught up in their energy. The fast foot movements and athletic ability and agility are awesome. This ability is missing today's dancers.

I think alot of critics think that the Marx Brothers' movies were just silliness when in fact these men paved a way for others to showcase their singing and dancing talent.

Best wishes,

Cindy
