This video shows how Fred Astaire's famous "dance around the room" was filmed by Stanley Donen in the 1951 movie "Royal Wedding" (now in public domain). To see a detailed account of how this video was made, visit http://www.bigfott.com/Astaire_Unwoun... .

While the actual filming of this number was apparently entirely undocumented, Donen recreated the effect in 1986 for Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling" music video. I've posted a behind the scenes look at that here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrvTB3... .
