Castle Maxixe Makes Cameo in Masterpiece Theater

 
Castle Maxixe dance and music:
 

 

made a cameo in PBS Masterpiece Theater "Mr. Selfridge" playing in the background of the party scene in Delphine Day's club of Season 2, Episode 1

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers also danced the Castle Maxixe in The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, but there isn't a clip on youtube, so you'll have to download the video if you wish to enjoy their displays of Terpsichorean artistry, or put up with this kludgy recording:

However, there was a clip of Ginger Rogers dancing with Johnny Carson:
 

 
 
Rather odd everyone appears civil in this clip b/c Ginger slags off Carson in her autobiography "Ginger: My Story" for being so gauche as to ask her how old she was. Of course, in today's age of imdb, it's more challenging, if not well nigh impossible, for actresses to hide their true ages, as another one of Ginger Roger's nemesis, Katharine Hepburn, tried to pull off in Love Among the Ruins
