Good call with the Dan Dailey!
I can definitely see Sam/Bates capturing the essence of the golden age of Hollywood musicals: Perky, glam, & technically precise!
A little Dan, a little Gene, some Debbie & Jane Powell, add water and stir!
Just not the "That's Entertainment" music mash.....

Evan also has a little Donald O'Connor in him.
When someone mentioned Jane Powell and Debbie Reynolds, I thought why not a 7 Brides for 7 Brothers or The Unsinkable Molly Brown down the road. Now if I had to say who Emily reminds me of, I would say a little June Allyson, Myrna Loy, Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, Joan Fontaine, Jeanne Craine, and Anne Baxter. I don't think that's quite right, so I will have to think on this.
