Help solving a marital squabble?

We’ve narrowed down all of Fred Astaire’s dance routines to the two best. Don’t argue. We know best all the way up to this point, where we disagree. My better half (usually) says the one up top is the best because Ginger’s dress weighed 400 pounds or something and as we all know she was always loud about saying she did everything Fred did only backwards and in high heels loaded down with feathers or in this case with a half ton of gold dress.

My pick, on the other hand, is what is widely acknowledged as the best movie dance routine ever, featuring the incomparable Cyd Charisse. No more needs to be said.

So vote in the comments. I know how it will go. Because I can always fix the outcome after the fact, just like they do at NBC.

    Hmm both incomparable and elegant. Cyd Charisse for me. Gotta love the spicy brunette over the cool, cool blonde.

    #2. The silent, in-step, flowing movements got me. #1 definitely classic. But #2 wins in points!
