Speaking in a new documentary, In Their Own Words, which aired last night on PBS, the 67-year-old actor described the 'storybook' moment he danced with Diana in photos that were seen around the world.    

'About 10 o'clock at night, Nancy Reagan tapped on my shoulder and said, "The princess, her fantasy is to dance with you,' the Saturday Night Fever star explained

"Would you like to dance with her tonight?". And I said, "Well of course"' he explained.

'My heart starts to race, you know, and I tap [Diana] on the shoulder and she turns around and looks at me, and she had that kind of bashful dip [of her chin] that she did, and she looked up at me, and I said, "Would you care to dance with me?".' 

'It was a storybook moment.
