You captured all the highlights. We are screening "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" at UCLA Film & Television Archive in a Tribute to George Chakiris Saturday November 16, 2013. George will be there, in person, for an interview.
This is a brilliant novelty number that Jack Cole made to showcase the great comic skills of Betty Grable. It's a period piece, a connoisseur item, either you get it or you don't. I absolutely love it.
