In honor of the opening of "Pal Joey"...

Here's Harold Lang performing "Happy Hunting Horn" with featured dancer Norma Thornton and the dance ensemble on the Ed Sullivan Show during the 1952 Broadway revival (which was supervised by Robert Alton, recreating his original choreography).

And for a real treat, here are a few seconds of silent 16mm footage (in color, no less) of originator Gene Kelly as Joey during the original 1940-41 Broadway run.

Thanks for providing. I should have known you'd be able to find a clip like this!
