The Band Wagon stars Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse, Oscar Levant, Nanette Fabray, and Jack Buchanan in this 1953 musical directed by Vincente Minnelli. The film is basically what goes during a Broadway show- backstage and in front of the crowds. Fred and Cyd were wonderful dancers, but seeing them together is pure magic. Cyd sparks and shatters brilliantly with her dancing. She is so amazing to watch! Fred, even at the age of 54, is phenomenally great. It doesn't matter how old Fred was, he's still got the skills to do it! My favorite actor in the movie was Nanette Fabray, not only was she hysterical but her songs were wonderful! I love the scene with her, Fred, and Jack in the 'Triplets' scene, that is such a genius song! They are all so adorable!
