Rita Hayworth doing Stayin' Alive

Back in the 50s and 60s, when I was too young to know the who's who of Hollywood stars, my trips to the cinemas were primarily to see movies starring famous actors of the time.  By chance, the producers of the shows always have the penchant to cast lovely actresses alongside these actors.  That was how I gradually came to know names such as Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Wood and Rita Hayworth, to name a few.
However, some bright spark, whom I believe has nothing better to do on a Sunday, pieced together movie shots of Rita Hayworth dancing to the Bee Gees', 'Staying' Alive'. This lovely actress who passed away in May 1987 at the age of 69, had worked alongside famous actors such as Fred Astair, Yul Brynner, Glen Ford and Stewart Granger.
What is interesting to note about the video is that many of the 50s dance movements are in sync with the disco beat of Stayin' Alive, a 70s disco dance music
