Eleanore Powell and Buddy Rich from “Ship Ahoy!"


Hi All -

Here is Eleanore Powell with her machine gun style tapping with incredible speed. The first third of this clip is some silliness with a song called “Talulah,” between Burt Lahr and Red Skelton. Ms. Powell comes aboard in a black and white outfit and dazzles with her tap dance. The ending of the clip has her and the great jazz drummer, Buddy Rich, tossing and exchanging drum sticks. Terrific!
