All of that talent is now directed to video games. Watching someone destroy aliens in a HALO game just doesn't have the same panache.

What movie was that clip from?

It's from a Friar's Club (a NY club famous for celebrity roasts) meeting in 1955.

My co-worker related that Bob Hope was 52 and James Cagney was 56 when this video was made. Amazing stuff!

Two great hoofers from the old days. Interestingly enough, they were total enemies from the political view--Cagney was labor/left wing, Bob Hope a committed conservative. Didn't get in the way when it was showtime, obviously. Two old pros showing the kids how it's done!

None could be finer that those two hoofing minors, on the town tonight.
