Geoffrey1Dancer Tribute 3/31/12: Geoffrey Holder (Port-of-Spain, Trinidad)

Does anyone out there LOVE The Cosby Show?

I was a huge fan of the show and enjoyed all 8 seasons.  But my favorite season of all was Season 5.  I LOVED the opening credits dance that was choreographed by Geoffrey Holder.  And being a Belly Dancer myself, I loved the Snake Arms towards the end in particular.

You sure can tell that Phylicia Rashad (Debbie Allen’s big sister) has had dance lessons.

But even before The Cosby Show Season 5 credits, I also remember Geoffrey2enjoying Geoffrey Holder in one of my favorite movies, as Punjab in Annie.  I love the dance scene with Ann Reinking, Roger Minami and Geoffrey Holder!

I also remember his 7-Up commercials from the 1970s, the UnCola and his famous line, Absolutely Marvelous!

The James Bond movie franchise has had bad eggs and some really good ones.  I loved Live & Let Die.  I liked the soundtrack by Paul McCartney & Wings, I loved the performance by Jane Seymour and also the crazy character Baron Samed played by none other than Geoffrey Holder.
