X = eXecerable Uh, I mean XANADU!



I personally believe that this is the movie that brought movie musicals into such disrepute that they went away for a while.  

Xana-DON'T


Gene Kelly made an appearance, which I am sure he bitterly regretted with every fiber of his being, though at an advanced age, wearing roller skates, Mr. Kelly still out-danced every other buskin-wearer who stumbled across the stage. 

But the finale really was a hum-dinger. 
Would you have thought that the Ancient Greek Muses were a pack of fluffy-haired disco babes?  On roller skates?  With neon auras?  Wearing knee-length bloomers under their dresses?

Me neither.

(I imagine them at the walls of Troy.  Uh...  No.)

Click at your own peril....
 
XANADU
