Lets Misbehave with Christopher Walken in Pennies from Heaven

I was inspired by MaryAnne's (ysabellabrave's) singing of Let's Misbehave at YouTube, so I started looking around after other versions of that jazz song. It didn't take long before I found a video clip of Christopher Walken tap dancing in the movie Pennies from Heaven.

Christopher Walken really shows off what it means to misbehave. His tap dancing is real but he mimes to the song which is really performed by Irving Aaronson and His Commanders. "Let's Misbehave" is written by Cole Porter. The film Pennies from Heaven is from 1981 and is directed by Steve Martin.

If you want to see more of Christopher Walken dancing, you should see him in the music video for Fatboy Slims song Weapon Of Choice.

What do you think of this video clip with Christopher Walken from Pennies from Heaven? Tell me.

I prefered the original Pennies from Heaven from 1936 with Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong. The music and dancing was just so much more real.

At the time when Weapon of Choice came out, I was just starting high school and thought that Christopher Walken (I didn't know the extent of his fame then) danced really well in the clip - it was one of my favourite music videos at the time! Thanks for reviving that memory ;)
