Three Little Words (1950) – Mr. and Mrs. Hoofer At Home

IMDb: Three Little Words (1950) — The story of the successful Tin Pan Alley songwriting team of Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby is told loosely and lightheartedly.
Stars: Fred Astaire, Vera-Ellen, Red Skelton

IMDb: Vera-Ellen began dancing at the age of 10, and a few years later became one of the youngest Rockettes. She appeared in several Broadway musicals until she was spotted by film producer Samuel Goldwyn in 1945. She was only 24 years old when Goldwyn cast her opposite Danny Kaye in Wonder Man (1945).  She danced with Fred Astaire in Three Little Words (1950) and with Gene Kelly in On the Town (1949). Blonde, slim of build, and a dancing sensation, she appeared in a string of light-hearted but successful films. Vera-Ellen retired from acting in the late 1950s.

The Three Little Words number reminds me a little of one of the great commercials of all time.

It’s from more than six years ago, so basically it reflects a reality you will only marginally recognize: two white people with hope, a family and dreams. The nerve.

But damn what a commercial.
