Something In The Way He Moves: Shirley Bassey

Never one of my favorite songs, until Old Shirl knocks it out the park as only she can. Her voice is so powerful here that this is almost a caricature of a show stopping diva. Except that she’s real! And how does she works that smoldering, flickering eye in the close-ups? I love how she holds back and tries to look “casual” at the very beginning. There has never been anything casual about this one!
