Some Technicolor Exercise

One of my favorite old films is The Women, the 1939 version. There’s a scene featuring Rosalind Russell in a fitness spa. She is such a great physical comedienne, contorting her knees-and-elbows frame, showing terrible form as she gossips on and on and rolls her eyes at everything her stoic trainer says.

I wanted to serve that up as a little Friday treat, but I haven’t been able to find it. In lieu of that, here’s another great vintage fitness-themed clip, that’s pretty fun, and it’s in technicolor and a musical! Plenty of gymnastic male pulchritude here. Enjoy!

Hope you have active plans for the weekend. Let me know what you’ve been up to.

  1. Was walking by the JCC exercise room yesterday, which, sadly, faces right on to California Street through huge windows. No secrets! The Pilates class in session was exACTly like that scene in The Women.
