Misc. Film Fun: Boogie Down!

Like to dance? We do — not that we're really all that good at it, though. One person that was, however, was Rita Hayworth (17 Oct 1918 – 14 May 1987) — not surprisingly, seeing that she came from a family with a long tradition of professional dancing. And one person that still is good at dancing is Christopher Walken, who seems to wiggle his hips at least once in almost all his movies.
What follows below are two fan-made dance videos that are always a gas to see, one for each previously mentioned legend, cut together from past movies of the given star and edited to dance classics of what is slowly but surely becoming not the recent past: Rita to the BeeGees' Stayin' Alive, the #1 hit from 1978 (#189 on the list of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time) and Walken to the early — and great — House hit from C+C Music Factory, Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now), which hit #2 on the Billboard charts in 1990. Enjoy!
