Awesome 60's Dance of the Day!

{New series....because I'm dreading the coming end of summer! Haha!}

The first in this amazing new series: the Mambo from Gidget Goes Hawaiian. Movie Mambos just don't get cooler than this (well, Teacher's Pet is a close second)!

The dancing starts at 1:10, but I'd recommend watching the whole clip. (the back-story is OH-SO necessary! ;-D)

This Awesome 60's Dance is done by Michael Callan (stupendously amazingly cool) and Deborah Walley (no comment).

After watching it, I always want to go to a 60's Night Club and start dancing. SERIOUSLY. (And, uh, you REALLY don't want to know how many times I've seen Gidget Goes Hawaiian *looks over shoulder*).


P.S. The completely awesome Michael Callan actually originated the role of Riff in West Side Story on Broadway!

P.P.S. Other completely awesome people to watch out for in this clip are: Carl Reiner and Joby Baker.

Don't forget WEST SIDE STORY'S Mambo. :)

I didn't mind Deborah Walley's Gidget as much as I thought I would.

James Darrin is why I watch these films, anyway. :)

She is darling!! I think I'm gonna have to see this movie!
Oh, and I love your "payback" to all your "teen/surfer movie hater" followers!! For the record, I didn't vote for the above -honestly I didn't! I've never even seen a 60's teen movie!!!!

Java: Haha, I didn't! Which is why I subtly hinted to it in the post-script! ;-DDD

UGH! She's pretty annoying in this though! I love the movie. BUT SHE'S NOT GIDGET. She's pretty much the same height AS MOONDOGGIE FOR GOODNESS SAKES! Haha!

Michael Callan is my favorite....haha!


Just darling. ;-D

Oh, you should! It's mind-smushing entertainment at it's absolute best! I'll have to see about uploading the entire movie to YouTube!

Oh, good! You're safe! ;-D

WHAT?! Oooh! I must educate you in the dumb teen 60's movie! It's pretty much the most brilliant genre! Hehe!
