The Jitterbug 1964

Posted by Dance

This is sort of an updated version of the jitterbug number that was cut from the movie “The Wizard of Oz” that also featured Judy Garland and Ray Bolger who appear here along with Jane Powell. The chorus does a sort of very theatrical jitterbug beginning at about the 1:20 mark.

  1. I had absolutely no idea this had ever been performed again by Judy Garland, so it's unexpected and a little odd to encounter it. In the 1960s, when this was on TV, "The Wizard of Oz" was already a beloved television staple, but "The Jitterbug" was pretty much unknown since it had been cut from the finished film. Judy had recorded it, and the sheet music had been released, but the original soundtrack recording and the small segments of the amateur film of the dance number wouldn't be seen or heard again till the 1980s. Today "The Jitterbug" has been restored to stage productions of "Wizard" so more people know it now.
