Clip of the Day: Fred Astaire's classic ceiling dance unwound
Today marks the 113th birthday of the late dance legend Fred Astaire. And to celebrate the ever-graceful Hollywood icon, we offer not only a video of his remarkable 360 dance number from Royal Wedding, but also a side-by-side comparison of the routine to Big Fott's incredible graphic that reveals the complicated timing/camera moves required to make it look so effortless.
In an age where quick-cuts dominate musicals, this one-take number is all the more remarkable.
