Fred Astaire 1951 Royal Wedding

"Royal Wedding" is a 1951 MGM musical comedy film starring Fred Astaire and Jane Powell.  In the dance scene above, called "Sunday Jumps", Fred Astaire parodies himself by dancing with a hatstand, crediting the idea to his choreographic collaborator Hermes Pan.

In 1997, Astaire's widow Robyn authorized a digitally altered version of the scene for a Dirt Devil TV commercial.
