On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Rita Hayworth, Tragic Princess

oh good lord, i could die and go to heaven now a happy woman. please don't ask how i discovered this... but I was watching the clip bailando nace el amor embedded in this post while listening to pitbull's "let's have a real good time"... and if you start the pitbull song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSExILkaF6U) at 1:09 in the rita & fred video, you will realize that it is actually Not metaphysically possible that they could have danced this not knowing pitbull would later write them the soundtrack of their lives. i refuse to watch the dance video now with the music it actually came with, because there's no way it could be as good. and the satisfying sense of cosmic justice, to see rita dancing to a the music of a spanish-language multimillionaire... it just feels so right.
