Don’t ask me why I love this scene from the 1980 grindhouse classic House on the Edge of the Park because I’ll go on and on. I could say that I love dancing in general. I could talk about how I own a red dress just like the one that Lorraine De Selle wears in this scene. I could rave about how pretty Annie Bell and Christian Borromeo were when they made this movie or the time capsule appeal of David Hess’s canary yellow suit.
But, in the end, I love this scene for two reasons:
1) The song playing in the background, composed by Riz Ortolani, is so bad yet so addictive and,
2) Giovanni Lombardo Radice is just so adorable doing his little dance.
