| Great clips, poor presentation.
When voting for this film, it is necessary to distinguish between the wonderful clips, which are the work of others, and the way in which they are presented, which is the work of the producer and director of "That's Dancing".

The majority of clips are excellent, although they do not always represent the stars' best work, presumably because certain excerpts had been used before or were not available for copyright or other reasons. For example the Nicholas Brothers' routine in "Orchestra Wives" is infinitely better than their appearance here.

The same cannot be said for the presentation. One expects to have to watch various presenters spouting a certain amount of bland dialogue, but do they really have to keep up the commentaries during the dances? Some are fairly unintrusive, but others, such as the one which punctuates "42nd Street", completely ruin the routines.

Film clips - 9, presentation -4.
