  1. Indeed! Hot stuff.

    The old Rooney/Garland pictures are filled with amazing things. In this clip, I love how Berkeley uses the moving camera and the limits of the frame in a strategic way. You never know what will be revealed as the camera moves in or out. It’s delightful — and a prime example of Berkeley’s talent for composing dance numbers for the movie camera. Supposedly, Berkeley spent so much time on this sequence, which was the first thing filmed, that Freed fired him from the picture.
