Music to Make Horror Movies By: Ann Miller

Her powerful Mulholland Drive landlady may have uttered the line “Ten bucks says you’re Betty,” but the divine Ann Miller, whose amazing career spanned decades, was always one in a million.

Movie buffs will always be grateful to the eccentric David Lynch for immortalizing Ann at the end of her career with a role in his mysteriously gothic masterpiece, but he was not the first auteur to take delight in Miller’s powerful presence. Dance maverick Busby Berkeley, long admired by such genre legends as Joe Dante and John Landis, provided this tap dancing marvel with one of her most captivating and original production numbers in the fun musical Small Town Girl.

Miller, long a believer in extraterrestrial powers – her final book was entitled Tapping into the Force, died at the age of 80 in 2004. But to her devoted fans and dedicated celluloid buffs, this expressive dynamo will live on forever!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Ginger Rogers

I don’t know about you, but I believe that everything is just a little bit better with a bit of Ginger sprinkled on it. Of course, in this case, I refer to the glorious Ginger Rogers. This Academy Award winning actress is probably best known for the multiple dance epics that she made with the elegant Fred Astaire. But, ever filled with an eclectic energy, this perky powerhouse actually began her career appearing in a couple of Gothic mystery-thrillers.

thirteenth_guestThe Thirteenth Guest and A Shriek in the Night feature the typical, gutsy work that was the Rogers’ trademark, but as she croons below, follow-up appearances in the terror genre were obviously just not for her!
