Watching Fred and Ginger in lieu of painting, Volume 2

Okay, I'll give you the other one too. Remember, 47 takes. Finished the thing in one day. One cut (at the top of the stairs, so they could move the camera) in over three minutes of dance. My favorite moment happens at 4:18, if you're curious.

Really, it's enough to make you want to pop your eyeballs out and scream at the top of your lungs.

For the record, Francis Bacon was fascinated with this image. He painted it at least once, as a complement to his Screaming Pope series. It would make an interesting annotated painting, yes?
