Casual Friday Video: Rita Hayworth Is Stayin' Alive

Friday, August 30, 2013

Isabella reporting,

It's no secret that we Nerdy History Girls have a serious weakness for old movies, especially old movies with dancing, but it's not as widely known that we have an equally serious admiration for actress Rita Hayworth. This fun little video features the divine Rita plus that famous ol' BeeGees song from Saturday Night Fever, brought together through some magical editing. What better way to begin the holiday weekend?

That was just wonderful. I had forgotten that Rita Hayworth was a dancer, too. I saw her in a few movies when I was growing up where she mostly acted and sang. Thanks for an exhuberant start to the day.
