Swing Time (1936)



Reviews and Comments

Some people consider this the best of the ten musicals Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, one of the most famous dancing teams of all time, made together. I like Top Hat better, but this one comes close. The plot doesn't matter: suffice it to say it involves society, show business, and love, all tangled up by a script that's witty and charming and provides the leads with an excuse to engage in verbal banter and fancy footwork.
