What TV Shows and Movies did you grow up with?

The vid of the day, all about dance, includes some footage of one of my favorite dance movies of all time -- the little known, but absolutely beautiful, White Nights.  Starring Mikhael Barishnikov and Gregory Hines, along with Isabella Rosallini, it's a great story of a Russian ballet dancer who defected to the west.  He's on a flight to Europe when they suddenly develop engine trouble over Russia, and he finds himself back in the country from which he fled years earlier.  He meets up with Hines, who is also a defector, except he's gone from the USA to Russia.  That's the story's premise -- but the dancing is amazing.  Barishikov shows his genius in several solos; Hines does the same.  But when you put these two very different dancers together, it's magic.  I highly recommend it.  One of the highlights is below.

I never saw the movie, Theresa, but I'm putting it in my Netflix queue RIGHT NOW!

Hey, it's available on Instant Watch so when I go upstairs. . . it will be waiting for me!♥
Hope you like it. I adored Mikhail and Gregory. Two very rare and different talents, but both sooo good.
For Mischa afficianados, try The Turning Point. Very, very good film. He got an Oscar nom and picture got 10-11. Didn't win anything but in addition to Mikhael it has Shirley Maclaine and Ann Bancroft at their best.
Agreed, Jim. Turning Point was a great movie and since I'm in the dance mood, from today's cover video, I think I'll go see if that one too is available on Instant Watch. Thanks for the reminder.
Look what Karen found!!!

I HOPE YOU NOTICED A YOUNG "ASTRID" FROM FRINGE AS ONE OF THE STUDENTS. THE MOVIE IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY.
