Eleanor Powell in Metro Goldwyn Mayers' 'Honolulu' 1939.
This routine was cut from the original film for reasons unknown. However it is and will remain a lost beauty after it was found in the late 80's in MGM's vaults. This was added to the 1946 unsuccessful film 'The Great Morgan' starring the famous Frank Morgan. I really hate how there are so many cuts away from Eleanor's performance, I have thanks to another YouTuber I have seen the full routine without cuts but that version features a buck and wing, crazed, frenzied tempo purposely done. Yet this version is executed much more in proportion, languid yet elegant. She is nothing but terpsichorean brilliance!!! Bow down to the master of tap!!!

The routine is either called Got a Pair of New Shoes and or The La Conga Tap.
