Ginger Rogers dances Charleston in Roxie Hart



Ginger Rogers was quite a Charleston dancer, in fact that was how she started her career as a dancer and actress. Here is a scene from the film Roxie Hart (1942) where Ginger Rogers dances Charleston. The scene did however not make into Roxie Hart, maybe it was the production code for the movie industry that put a stop to that, I don't know.

The story is based on a true crime and has been made first into a silent movie: Chicago (1927) and of course the modern day remake: Chicago (2002) featuring Renée Zellweger as Roxie Hart.

What do you think of Ginger Rogers dancing Charleston in Roxie Hart? Tell me.

I think that Ginger Rogers was fantastic as was her partner for many years. What I like best, however, was the era and how the world was "back then." Just seems simpler in some ways.

Thanks for the post, I enjoyed watching it.
