If you’re a famous choreographer like Bob Fosse was in the 70s, you can probably walk into any evening establishment and bust the moves with any lady you are picking. Of course, if we are being honest, most women don’t expect a man to be a good dancer because, quite frankly, they aren’t. Jessica Lange must have been quite surprised when Bob Fosse wanted to share a song with her.
Fosse was the mastermind behind all the dance moves in the flicks “Sweet Charity,” “Chicago” and “Cabaret.” He offered his expertise in choreography, directing and filmmaking and was known as the king of unique dance moves back then. It’s no shocker here that he could easily work his way into any lady’s arms with his charm, like on this night when he swept Jessica Lange right off of her feet.
NYE in NYC's Studio 54
It seems like Diana Ross could not get enough of Studio 54's dance floor back in the 70s. It's clear that the singer and actress loved to get down and dirty in her ruffled dancing attire. On this particular night, she and the other club-goers were celebrating New Year's Eve.
What better place to do so than at New York's hottest club at the time? Diana and Andre Leon Talley seem to be enjoying the moment in each other's reach. Andre Leon Talley was still in his young days here, but little did he know that he would one day be the Vogue editor and be known as a trailblazer in the world of fashion.
Meeting Your Idol on a Night Out
It doesn't matter if you are a movie star, an athlete, an artist or an entrepreneur. Pretty much everyone has an idol, and when you get to meet your idol, it'll probably be one of the best feelings in the world. At least, that was what it looked like when Gilda Radner met her idol.
Sadly, this will never happen to any of us, but Radner certainly had a streak of luck when she got to share a dance with the king of comedy, Bill Murray. For Gilda, who was an aspiring actress and comedian at the time, this was a dream come true. It's times like these that we get reminded that anything is possible if you just believe in yourself.
Been There, Done That
Have you ever gone out on the town with your mates and you all find yourselves in the deep end of a drunken karaoke performance of all your favorite songs? We don't exactly know the full story behind this picture of singer Carly Simon and Karen Black from the 70s, but it sure looks like they got themselves into a karaoke ‘singathon.’
Of course, these two were giving the party-goers a far better performance than any other average karaoke singer. Karen Black showcased her talents in several musical films such as "Nashville" and "The Great Gatsby," while Carly Simon boasted several chart-topping hits like "You're So Vain." They look like they are having the absolute time of their life, and it's no wonder since they were both known for their quirky personas and impromptu ways.
Truman Capote Breaks It Down Again
This is not the first time that we get to see the novelist Truman Capote get down and dirty. It's quite apparent how much this star liked to work hard but also party just as hard. This novelist was the brains behind the cult classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's" as well as the true crime best-seller "In Cold Blood."
Given that he is one of the best novelists to ever roam this earth, there really is no reason that he doesn't get to walk around Studio 54 with all the confidence he seems to be embracing in this picture. Other prominent writers who graced the scene with their presence at the same club include Andy Warhol, Norman Mailer and Gore Vidal. We think unquestionably that Studio 54 attracted a varied crowd, which went all the way from supermodels to writers, actors and pop stars.
