Great Movie Moments: ‘The Company’s’ “My Funny Valentine”

posted by Nell Minow

My new book, which should be out by the end of the year, is about some of my favorite movie moments.  I’m having a lot of fun writing about them but one thing I can’t do in a book is post the clips, so I’m going to post some of them here.  This is from Robert Altman’s lovely film about ballet, “The Company,” starring Neve Campbell (a real-life former dancer who co-produced).

In this scene, Campbell and one of the other dancers perform a pas de deux to Rodgers and Hart’s “My Funny Valentine” at an outdoor venue.  A rainstorm begins.  The audience puts up umbrellas, the musicians scramble to keep their music from flying away, and the dance keeps going.
