Age has nothing to do with it

    I can’t watch videos like this without thinking about how easy it is to spot the non-dancer when paired with a dancer in these shows. It’s a great scene. I need to look up more Cagney scenes.

  2. 52 and 56 aren’t old, particularly in professionals that require more brain than brawn, and more wisdom and knowledge of the world than callow youth.

    Anybody remember Dick Van Dyke dancing at the end of “Night at the Museum?” I think he was 82 at the time.
