Shall We Dance

2 years ago at Nov 16 23:30
Essentially a redress of Top Hat with ballet plugged into the plot contrivance and George and Ira Gershwin in place of Irving Berlin, Shall We Dance comes so close to recreating the delicate perfection of prior pairings that it’s frustrating when it falls just short. The major problem is that a bit of Shall We Dance feels stiff kneed when trying to go for a rat-a-tat-tat routine. It just seems l... read more
View all Shall We Dance reviews
A ballet dancer and a showgirl fake their marriage for publicity purposes before falling in love for real in this delightful musical comedy starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Among the well-known songs in George and Ira Gershwin’s score are “Slap That Bass,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “They All Laughed,” and “Let's Call the Whole Thing Off,” which features Fred and Ginger in a showstopper dance sequence on roller skates.

Shall We Dance

“Essentially a redress of Top Hat with ballet plugged into the plot contrivance and George and Ira Gershwin in place of Irving Berlin, Shall We Dance comes so close to recreating the delicate perfection of prior pairings that it’s frustrating when it falls just short.
