Top Hat Shall We Dance Film Poster


A double bill of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers pairings. In 'Top Hat' (1935) Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire) receives an inexplicably haughty response from Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers) when he attempts to woo her, but that's because she has mistaken him for her friend's husband. Love's eventual triumph is charted through a number of classic song and dance routines, including 'Cheek to Cheek' and 'Top Hat, White Tie and Tails'. In 'Shall We Dance'(1937) Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers once again romp through familiar romantic entanglements and a string of toe-tapping dance routines. Petrov (Astaire), a Russian ballet dancer, and musical comedy star Linda Keene (Rogers) are thrust into a marriage of convenience - she wants the shotgun wedding to be followed by an even quicker divorce, so that she can marry the man she really loves and retire from the stage. Not surprisingly, though, the path to true love takes a few unplanned diversions.
