Congratulations to all SSO members for some great musical moments. Also most of the You Tube selections are a joy to watch.
Judith, I also love the Laurel & Hardy numbers.

I thought of a few more that I especially enjoy watching:

"Good Morning" performed by Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O'Connor in "Singin' in the Rain".
"Goin' Co'tin'" (always thought it was Goin' Courtin') performed by Jane Powell and the 'brothers' in "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers".
"I Remember It Well" performed by Maurice Chevalier and Hermione Gingold in "Gigi".

My favorite musical sequence is any in which Cyd Charisse is showing off her fabulous gams. :)

Thought of another one I really love, one that is often overlooked in these selections:

Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse dancing together in "Who's Got The Pain When They Do the Mambo?" in Damn Yankees. Fabulous.

Thought of two others I could see again and again:

"Les Poissons," from The Little Mermaid, voiced by Rene Auberjonois as the royal French chef.

"Don't Marry Me," sung by Jack Soo in Flower Drum Song. If ever there were a wasted talent, it was Mr. Soo.
