As a July 4th prelude, how about a little George M. Cohan?
These two cats weren’t exactly in their prime when they did this, but you’d never know it. (Bob Hope was 52, James Cagney 56.) Here’s an exuberant celebration of talent, tenacity, and pure terpsichorean joy. It’s a reminder that, in the great dance of life, we’re all ageless.Here’s Mr. Hope and Mr. Cagney (reprising his iconic role as Cohan that he danced to a fare-thee-well in “Yankee Doodle Dandy” over a decade earlier) in “The Seven Little Foys” (1955). Enjoy. I sure did.
