A classic

9 years, 8 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

Top Hat

5 years, 2 months ago at Mar 5 1:50
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

Showman Jerry Travers is working for producer Horace Hardwick in London. Jerry demonstrates his new dance steps late one night in Horace's hotel, much to the annoyance of sleeping Dale Tremont below. She goes upstairs to complain and the two are immediately attracted to each other. Complications arise when Dale mistakes Jerry for Horace

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

"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.
