you only had one Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers film to watch
... This Is It!!! "
Synopsis: This is Astaire
sixth film together. Fred plays John "Lucky" Garnett
who is a gambling hoofer who's engaged to marry a young socialite
(Betty Furness), but when he's late for the wedding his prospective
father-in-law sends him away, demanding that he earn $25,000
before he can earn his daughter's hand in marriage. When Fred
meets Penny Carrol (Ginger Rogers) in a local Gordon Dance
studio where he pretends to be a klutz so she can be his instructor,
he's instantly smitten, he pursues, she resists. Lucky saves
Penny's job at the Studio by showing the owner (Eric Blore)
how much she has taught him in only a few minutes!.
and Ginger do some of the most elegant dance sequences ever
filmed. The sly "Pick Yourself Up" features Ginger
teaching the supposedly flub-footed Fred how to dance. Also
the "Bojangles of Harlem," a tribute to hoofer Bill
Robinson, has Astaire tapping with three giant Astaire shadows
and partners with 30 girls at once. And the Academy Award(R)
winning number "the Way You Look Tonight" has Ginger
and Fred doing their best. Hermes Pan was nominated for his
work as Dance Director for Astaire's astounding "Bojangles
of Harlem" number.
