Date: 1934
Type: Musical
Rating: 3 Stars 3/5
Colour: No
Director: Mark Sandrich

This is the first film that featured Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers as the two lead characters. The plot is thin, but the dancing from from Astaire and Rogers is excellent, set against a an Art Deco backdrop. The dialogue and some of the acting may not be of the highest quality, but this escapism into Holywood glamour appealed to audiences during the 1930's depression. Watch this and enjoy the talent and elegance of two great dancers and a fine rendition of the Cole Porter song Night and Day..
