In 1958, OMNIBUS, the Golden Age of Television's most distinguished series, commissioned Gene Kelly's first television special. Written, choreographed, co-directed, and starring the Hollywood legend, DANCING, A MAN'S GAME enlisted some of the top names in sports to illustrate Kelly's message about the masculine grace of dance. Digitally re-mastered from the original 16mm kinescope prints preserved by the Library of Congress, this acclaimed production will be broadcast for the very first time since its historic NBC broadcast on December 21, 1958. WMHT is the only place in the entire world that is broadcasting it!
FEATURING APPEARANCES BY Baseball Star MICKEY MANTLE, Football Quarterback JOHNNY UNITAS, Basketball Hero BOB COUSY, Boxing Champion SUGAR RAY ROBINSON, Olympic Skater DICK BUTTON and Dancing Greats EDWARD VILLELLA and PATRICK ADIARTE.
