Maven has come across
a double-link to the Charlie Chan Series!
. . . . Rita Hayworth (billed as Rita Cansino)
is doing a very sultry dance in the 1935 Dante's Inferno with Spencer Tracy. Unfortunately, Maven doesn't think
it contains the entire dance because she remembers Cansino's very long hair coming undone. . . . Just think of all those
bobby pins all over the dance floor!
"Rita Cansino" made Dante's
Inferno right after she made Charlie Chan in Egypt.
has also found out the music in this clip of Rita dancing is the "Zarzuela Cubana" by Ernesto Lecuona (composer of "Siboney")
that was used for Joan Woodbury's dance in Broadway.
At the beginning of the movie, Louise Henry (as
Billie Burke) goes to the Chans' state room with a headache beating as hard as a bass drum in a Harlem band.
Wonder what she was talking about?!
