And I can't help but think it's quite something to have lived from 1919 to 2020.

I was thinking about that today. To be able to say, "I can remember going to see Garbo in Camille when I was in high school!"

My favorite Marge and Gower Champion dance and one of my favorite 50s era M-G-M musicals moments:

RIP. Obituary in The Los Angeles Times.


The vivacious Los Angeles native served as the movement model for several of Walt Disney’s animated classics, including “Fantasia” (1940; in which her dancing was the basis for Hyacinth Hippo in the hippo ballet), “Pinocchio” (1940; as the model for the Blue Fairy); “Dumbo” (1941; as Mr. Stork) and most famously as the lead in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937). As a performer, she was half of a popular husband-and-wife dance duo with Gower Champion in the late 1940s and ’50s.
