|" Romance Of The Seven Seas"|
Synopsis: This Video is about construction
workers in World War II in the Pacific who are needed to build
military bases. John Wayne takes a crew of construction workers
and turns them into one of WW II's toughest fighting forces in
this action-packed war classic. But first he has to convince the
army brass to let his civilians bear arms, and then he's got to
whip them into combat shape. Pretty good W.W.II propaganda machine/
film for the time.
This is not a dance film but, John Wayne dances the Jitterbug
with world Jitterbug champion " Twinkle toes Tucker"
(Adele Mara) in a pretty funny Jitterbug scene at a officers party.
The dance isn't very good as a dancer goes, but he was supposed
to look like he didn't know what he was doing when dancing with
the " World Champ" and he did that well. Wayne is back
lead in a couple of dance tricks. For swing dance entertainment
it gets a 10, for dance a 1. Wayne also does the Jitterbug
in A Lady Takes a Chance.
