The Gay Divorcee

4 years, 6 months ago at Nov 16 23:29
The best of the Fred and Ginger movies take place in an imaginary Art Deco world where the Great Depression takes place in an alternate reality, the champagne flows freely, and the ideal rich are charmingly bumbling their way through love and posh continental locations.

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers sing, dance, and find romance to the songs of Cole Porter in one of their greatest films. While crossing the English Channel after a successful engagement in the cafés of Paris, American dancer Guy Holden (Astaire) is swept into a whirlwind romance when he meets Mimi Glossop (Rogers), a woman whose quest for a divorce results in a series of mistaken-identity hijinks. Featuring the musical numbers “The Continental” and “Night and Day,” this second pairing between Astaire and Rogers finds the legendary dance team in full swing.

The Gay Divorcee

“The best of the Fred and Ginger movies take place in an imaginary Art Deco world where the Great Depression takes place in an alternate reality, the champagne flows freely, and the ideal rich are charmingly bumbling their way through love and posh continental locations. The formula of their films hadn’t quite settled just yet as The Gay Divorcee was their second film together but the first as leads. The studio stuck them with proven commodities like Alice Brady, future sidekicks Eric Blore and Edward Everett Horton, and plum songbook by Cole Porter.   If the studio didn’t have enough faith in them, and by all accounts they didn’t, then RKO was foolish in historical hindsight. While The Gay Divorcee isn’t one of my favorite outing from the pair, it’s still a uniformly strong o” read more
