They don’t make movie stars like Betty Grable anymore. She was a massive star, a household presence, a vivacious hoofer, a charismatic singer/dancer/commedienne. We’ll honor Grable by screening two of three movies she made with her favorite choreographer, Jack Cole, during All That Jack (Cole), the New Year’s big film retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art. Both Meet Me After the Show (1951) and Three for the Show (1955) are on the roster,* with choreographer Mia Michaels introducing “Meet me …” on January 29.
