A beautiful clip of Ray Bolger with Marie Osmond. I love her intro for him. And this is another video that really shows how "chipper and fully of moxie" Ray was.

Another video showcasing Bolger's dancing talents--this one a performance of "The Old Soft Shoe." He sings here, too. So lovely.

Here's a video of Ray Bolger dancing in "The Harvey Girls." His simply silly and carefree attitude shine strongly in his steps and facial expressions. He's playing a role here, but I do think his personality shows through it.

Ray Bolger encourages Judy to sing on her show. So adorable. Never knew Ray Bolger tap danced until watching this. He's pretty impressive.

A video of Ray Bolger and Judy Garland together. And no, they're not in Oz, they're on a show together. Such a sweet conversation between the two. I love that he cues her to sing. They seem so happy with each other, I wonder how much more might have been between them.

A great clip of Ray Bolger on What's My Line. Love how he tries to throw everyone off with different voices. It's really hard not to look at him and not see Scarecrow though.
