Gilda's Dancing Part 2

I've been fascinated by this scene for the past month. I'd never seen Gilda before. I've also recently been intrigued by the choreography of Jack Cole. A while ago, I was trying to figure out some Marilyn Monroe musical performances. I always thought they were strange. Interesting, but strange. Learning about Jack Cole explained so much to me. Watching him dance, you can see so clearly where her moves came from.

RIta Hayworth was a fantastic dancer. I think any perceived awkwardness was really just about her trying to keep her dress up without the girls popping out. I'm not joking about that


The perceived "awkwardness" is to convey that Gilda is very drunk.
