The Barkleys of Broadway

1 year, 11 months ago at Jan 12 3:52
Originally conceived as a reunion of Fred Astaire and Judy Garland after the success of Easter Parade, The Barkleys of Broadway instead ended up being the coda for the Astaire and Ginger Rogers duo. Garland was amid a breakdown due to her addictions and Rogers was a last-minute replacement. This also holds the distinction of being their lone film in color.     It had been ten years since their... read more
View all The Barkleys of Broadway reviews
Ten years after the last of their iconic films together at RKO, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers reunited one last time, this time at MGM and in full Technicolor. They play, appropriately enough, a pair of married, feuding musical-comedy stars who break up when she decides to try her luck in the legitimate theater . . . only to realize how much they need each other. Astaire and Rogers prove they’ve still got that old magic, particularly in an elegant ballroom reprise of George Gershwin’s “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” which the pair first made famous in 1937’s SHALL WE DANCE.

The Barkleys of Broadway

“Originally conceived as a reunion of Fred Astaire and Judy Garland after the success of Easter Parade, The Barkleys of Broadway instead ended up being the coda for the Astaire and Ginger Rogers duo. Garland was amid a breakdown due to her addictions and Rogers was a last-minute replacement. This also holds the distinction of being their lone film in color.     It had been ten years since their last film, The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, and there were rumors that their working relationship was closely related to the one depicted here. The truth of the matter was probably too complicated for us to boil down to a few sentences. She wanted and tried to escape the song-and-dance routine with deeper dramatic parts, he didn’t want to be perpetually defined by being half of a duo, and ” read more
