The Rubberband Man's excellent GIF of Lulu over on the Ruby Flipper grand favourites poll got me thinking about occasions when our dancers gave us a cheeky wink. Ive highlighted four occasions of this in the collage below. But im getting a feeling i may have forgotten one or two, if so i would be grateful if you could tip me the wink and let me know of anymore ?
Apart from Lulu's quick wink in the Flipper routine to `The Rubberband Man`, she does so again in the Legs & Co routine from December 1977 `Dance Dance Dance`. Look for that very carefully around the 30 second mark.
Gill of course famously gives us a wink in `Suspicion`, though i suspect she had mischief on her mind that day just having taken part in `hat-gate`. Patti, keeps the platoon happy by delivering a big wink at the end of Stray Cat Strut.
Interesting also that Legs sole `left handed member` Lulu, delivers her winks using her left eye. Gill, a right hander does so with her right eye. Patti, a right hander but due to the way the scene is shot with half her face in shadow, has to do so using her left eye.
OMG, i think shes at it again ? I may have found another wink from Legs & Co's serial winker Lulu. This one is a real case of blink and you miss the wink ! Keep your eye on her left eye, right eye as you look at it.
The routine is `Everybody Dance`. Watch the clip on Dailymotion. The wink is at 2.31 mins on the link below. Let me know what you think. Does she or does she not.
Yes when i broached this latest wink find with the lads last Saturday at Kal it got rather a luke warm response too. Its strange because when i play it at full speed i see the wink clear as day. But when i slow it down to 0.25 speed on YouTube i see nothing at all.
