From Another Time

by mehaul on Jun 9, 2010

Please forgive the brevity of this review. It tears me into pieces, It is a very good bit of filmdom history, but much is lipsync'd. The choreography is great and the tap and pairs dancing...well the last appreciated dancing was called break and that ended public displays of hoofing as entertainment, And the lip synk was done for a purpose, welcome in the fifties but condemned by the time we got to MilliVanilli. So all us old timers will love this film, most kids will go " gimme $20 for the mall" but some will appreciate Keel, Grayson and the Champion couple (ain't they sumppin?) Me, I like; but I feel wrong telling this generation that this is how it should be when that is wrong, Their way is right for them. Tho' seeing this won't hurt and it was right for us in its time.
