"Puttin' on the Ritz"
Fred Astaire is fantastic in this sequence. He was never a "crooner" and it's unfortunate that the director asked him to sing the intro. But watch - beginnng at the 1:30 mark - when the singing starts and the dancing begins... Outstanding.
BTW, this video is high enough definition to justify watching fullscreen... Enjoy!
The Gene Wilder/Peter Boyle parody is offered as a humorous tribute.
