What a pleasant way to wake up! We were greeted this morning by this clever video of Rita Hayworth dancing to the Bee Gee’s song Stayin’ Alive sent by a friend. Rita has always been one of our favorites, and sometimes Eva Mendes reminds us of her. If you haven’t seen this, you are in for a treat. Her dance outfits are adorable too.
