beyond fred, ginger & gene

 It's way too short, lasting perhaps less than a minute, and for some reason, director Bridges opted to film it in shadows, but is any dance on film more endearing than Debra Winger and John Travolta's wedding waltz to Anne Murray's achingly beautiful rendition of “Could I Have This Dance (for the Rest of My Life)?”? I think not.

 The number: “Could I Have This Dance (for the Rest of My Life)?”
