From Youtube: Chita Rivera and the campiest collection of male dancers this side of the Village People sing and dance this super fun go-go number on a 1968 installment of the Hollywood Palace. Watch out for Chita’s wardrobe change….a one-take spectacular!

What Allee has to say about this:
Chita’s not kidding that these guys are “prit-teee”.

I love so many things about this clip – the costumes, the set, the Fosse-to-the-extreme choreography, the boots, the extreme bellbottoms on one of the dancers, the gold chains and medallions, the jeweled motorcycle cap and macramé vest, the punctuated pronunciation of the word “pretty” as if it were two distinct words, “prit” and “tee”, not to mention Chita herself at her peakiest peak! Excellence all the way around!
