Poster for Top Hat

In this 1935 classic starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (widely regarded as the dance pair's best film), showman Jerry Travers (Astaire) is working for producer Horace Hardwick (Edward Everett Horton) in London. Jerry demonstrates his new dance moves late one night in Horace's hotel, much to the annoyance of sleeping Dale Tremont (Rogers) below. She goes upstairs to complain and the sparks fly. Romantic complications arise when Dale mistakes Jerry for Horace. More

Top Hat was nominated for four 1935 Oscars (Best Picture, Music, Art Direction and in the now defunct Dance Direction category).

This one can't miss and the reasons are three -- Fred Astaire, Irving Berlin's 11 songs and sufficient comedy between numbers to hold the film together.

Because we are bound by gravity and the limitations of our bodies, because we live in a world where the news is often bad and the prospects disturbing, there is a need for another world somewhere, a world where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers live.

The plot is involving, especially as it builds to its seemingly impossible-to-solve finale.
