Top Hat The Gay Divorcee Film Poster


Double bill of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire dance classics. In 'Top Hat' (1935), Jerry Travers (Astaire) receives an inexplicably haughty response from Dale Tremont (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 1934's 'The Gay Divorcee', would-be divorcee Mimi Glossop (Rogers) mistakes love-sick Guy Holden (Astaire) for a professional co-respondent hired by her aunt. She therefore treats him with disdain, but romance proves inevitable. Cole Porter's 'Night and Day' is the only song taken directly from the stage play.
