Nostalgia - David Hare recalls THE PIRATE Ballet

Roger Edens goes nuts with a variation on the Cole Porter Macoco theme, and Kelly does the second best number in the show, after the Nicholas Brothers, in The Pirate. This is Minnelli in uncharacteristic Beefcake mode. And all the better for it.
Between them Kelly and Cyd Charrisse had the best gams (and thighs) in the history of the motion picture musical.

I feel better now. Sigh......
