Glindalicious Greetings, my darling fans and a HUGE THANKS to each and every one of you as we now usher in the fall!
A fresh post is just around the corner and as the curtain prepares to rise on that and many other Glindalistic announcements that’ll make your head spin off your shoulders, here’s a little treat I’ll know you’ll be thanking me for.
A Preface Before Viewing The Video
American screen legend Rita Hayworth was born October 17, 1918. The ultimate Hollywood bombshell of the wartime 1940’s trained as a dancer and hit stardom as an actress with her appearance in The Strawberry Blonde in 1941. Best known for her performance in Charles Vidor‘s Gilda in the film’s release in the year 1946, her career ended with Ralph Nelson‘s The Wrath of God in 1972. Hayworth died on May 14, 1987 of Alzheimer’s disease.
As you will see, although this video was a labor of love to edit, someone, somewhere had a lot of fun when they took on this project. Interestingly, most of the people in the video were deceased before the Bee Gees recorded Staying Alive. Whether you are a Bee Gees or Rita Hayworth fan or not…you are going to enjoy this. Whoever is responsible for this did a brilliant job of putting these clips together with the music. It is a magnificent marriage of 40’s dancing and this Bee Gees hit.
My personal gratitude, acknowledgement, and professional credit to YouTube, et7, the Bee Gees, and last but not least, the incomparable Rita Hayworth, who still to this day lives in the hearts of many for all the obvious reasons. She would have been 95 next month, on the 17th of October. Enjoy and stay tuned for my next post!
Ta ta for now,
