Episode 29: Kismet

Kismet

In a word…LUSCIOUS

This week’s episode features Windy’s beloved Howard Keel and the gorgeous melodies of Borodin – it’s KISMET!

Mike and Vinnie literally had no idea this movie even existed.  And yet…

The Broadway musical ran for over 500 performances. When the film production was announced, the biggest stars of the day vied for the leading role of Hajj. It features the exciting choreography of Jack Cole, the father of modern jazz dance.  All this, and the musical has been largely forgotten by modern audiences.

Seek this one out, Jazz Hams! Howard Keel positive revels in the wily charms of the Poet. And his wiles are more than matched by the arched side-eye of Dolores Gray. Throw in Vincente Minelli’s eye-popping palette, and you’ll find yourself swept away by its sensuous, sly, and silly chams.

“Not Since Ninevah” watch JACK COLE choreography here!
