That is just astonishing -- I love the movement in her dress, and the dour faces of the men in the background. This just makes my whole week!

Thanks, rg. Nice shot of two true divas. Rudi looks great. Sixties fashions seem designed to emphasize the worst aspects of Taylor's figure, but she plainly couldn't care less, double chins and all. She's a Star!

Looking at these two beautiful stars -- and even seeing the long-forgotten word "frug" -- brings back a rush of memories.

I love the fact that Taylor is dancing in feathers, accompanied by one of the most passionate Siegfrieds of all times.

It's like a vision of Odette's bouncer, peppier, more zoftig sister -- the good-time girl who loves to party. Who knew there was a Disco on the other side of Swan Lake?
