Back when nearly everyone knew how to do couples dancing, dance contests and nights out swing dancing ’til late were not unheard of. And, the jitterbug is a dance for the young, too! Jerry Lewis never fails to get us laughing, but he also mesmerizes with his physical timing and his talent for dance. In Living It Up (1954) Lewis does an incredible jitterbug with blonde bombshell Sheree North. This joyful performance has all the energy and spark you’d expect from two such gifted performers. The fantastical plot is pulled off as only Martin and Lewis can, of course. But, this dance scene really is the gem in this wonderful film. Have another look at this high-energy, high-octane jitterbug dance scene from back when films showcased the dancing talents of their stars!
