The Condos Brothers lay down some taps!

You've seen these guys pop up uncredited in some Betty Grable films (Moon Over Miami,Pin Up Girl) and while they lack the classy charisma of the better known Nicholas Brothers, are none the less awesome hoofers known to tap devotees. Thought I might share some stunning routines found on Youtube:

From Abbot & Costello's IN THE NAVY(1941)

And Sonja Henie's HAPPY LANDING (1938) - not the most politically correct costuming, but this is the most amazing routine!

In researching these guys I learn that Nick Condos was married to and had a daughter with Martha Raye.

Awesome, Jez!

You always find some gem to brighten my day! Love them, and although I know I've seen them before I never really paid any attention. Thanks!

I think family acts are the best, because all their family traits and mannerisms make the dance moves more in synch with each other. I agree that the Condos Bros. are pretty great, not quite The Nicholas' Bros, but then who is?
