From Youtube: Chita Rivera and the campiest collection of male dancers this side of the Village People sing and dance this super fun go-go number on a 1968 installment of the Hollywood Palace. Watch out for Chita’s wardrobe change….a one-take spectacular!

    Chita’s not kidding that these guys are “prit-teee”.

    I love so many things about this clip – the costumes, the set, the Fosse-to-the-extreme choreography, the boots, the extreme bellbottoms on one of the dancers, the gold chains and medallions, the jeweled motorcycle cap and macram√© vest, the punctuated pronunciation of the word “pretty” as if it were two distinct words, “prit” and “tee”, not to mention Chita herself at her peakiest peak! Excellence all the way around!

    Right on! I was mesmerized by this video clip and am always going back for a viewing! I love it when the camera pans in for a close up (to give her a moment to take off her black outfit) and when it pans away, BAM! Chita RIvera in go go boots! This video is me to the tee!
