IRENA CARA BABY!
Classic movie from the early 80s
One of cinema's most famous dance scenes?
Loved Jennifer Beals, still do.

When it hits around $10 I'm in. Had one of the most memorable days/nights of my life when we went to see this in the theater.

Not that this movie is really worth it, but I wonder if it would be possible to re-shoot some bits using Jennifer Beals today the way they re-shot some effects sequences using Joanna Cassidy for the final cut of "Blade Runner". If they could fix the scenes with an obviously male body double, that would be nice.

Now you've got me curious. Never noticed the male body double before. I've previously owned this on DVD (awful sound) and LD but have neither presently.

Actually, there were three body doubles who did the dancing in the film. One of the them, was this french actress and dancer by the name of Marine Jahan, who did most of the ballet-ish moves. The other person was this UCLA vault champion by the name of Sharon Shapiro, who did the diving in the air at the end of the audition, and the third person was this male break dancer called Crazy Legs, who did the spin on his back, however, when Jennifer Beals was asked if she did any of the dancing, she gave the credit to Marine Jahan because she was never listed in the end credits...
