I taught Fred Astaire everything he needed to know to swing Ginger Rogers across a sound stage… Good ‘ol days of pure entertainment!
Wow, the opening dance looks complicated with all those ribbons but it’s mesmerizing to watch. And of course Fred and Ginger slay their part 😀 It’s such a pleasure to watch them dance.

Doesn’t it, though?! I was wondering about what the rehearsals for that must have looked like!
Hah – yes!
Reblogged this on Jezzie G.
Thank you for reblogging. 🙂
Most welcome x
Must register my regular complaint. We get to see Fred’s lanky legs at work, but Ginger’s lovely gowns conceal all but her footwork – and she has great legs, that rare flash when you can see ’em.
Top Hat (1935) IMDb: Considered by many to be the dancing duo’s best film, it features a classic Irving Berlin score, including “Cheek to Cheek” and the title song. Look for a young Lucille Ball as a florist shop clerk!
I remember that scene!
You can’t go wrong with Fred & Ginger, or Fred alone. I’ve seen those movies so many times that I know most of the dialog
