A classic

12 years, 10 months ago at Aug 16 6:42
To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of musicals but since this one was such a classic, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, even if it turned out to be a decent watch, I have to admit that I had a rather hard time to really care about the damned thing. I mean, sure, with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers involved, there were obviously some very good dancing scenes (I still prefer ... read more

Cinema produces many iconic pairings, typically comedic duos who play off each other brilliantly, and find ways to make their disparate qualities part of the material, like Laurel & Hardy or the Marx Brothers. Or similar stars with personas that mesh well, like William Powell and Myrna Loy as the movie’s gold star duo for smart, witty, urbane, sophisticated couples whose characters clearly e... read more

I mean, sure, with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers involved, there were obviously some very good dancing scenes (I still prefer Gene Kelly though), the songs were not bad and there were even some funny dialogues here and there. Unfortunately, even though I am well aware that it is inherent to the genre, I thought that the story was really fluffy. "

"During the Depression era, there were two popular film genres: the musicals and screwball comedies. "Top Hat" combines the two and gives us a movie that works better as one over the other. American dancer Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire) and his producer Horace Hardwick (Edward Everett Horton) are touring in London when Jerry meets a wealthy model Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers) and tries to impress her with his skills. However, things get mixed up when Dale confuses Jerry for Horace, thinking he’s h"

"“Even the misunderstandings give rise to beautiful songs…. The music so buoyantly conveys the feeling, even when they’re mad at each other. The music is connecting them.” - Molly Haskell “I think one area that Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers don’t get credit for is the great acting they did in their songs. They’re giving great performances. Just watch their faces. They’re conveying exactly what we need to know, never overdoing it. They make it look so easy that we don’t see al"
