We begin in the midst of the song and dance number. Gene Wilder, as Dr. Frankenstein, is focused on his tap routine and singing the song. The monster is still just a beat or two behind, but is doing a very good job nonetheless. At one point Dr. Frankenstein pulls back his sleeves as though to say, nothing here. The monster does a similar motion. As the song comes to a bridge, it's time for an extended tap dance routine. This is where we take a moment to delve into the history of tap dancing. We close the minute out still in the middle of the Puttin on the Ritz routine.

Joining us again as our guest on the Wilder Ride is Matt Gray, former private detective and current land surveyor.
