FRED AND GINGER COLLECTION TOP HAT/SHALL WE DANCE/FOLLOW THE... U

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A collection of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musicals. 'Top Hat' (1935) sees Jerry Travers (Astaire) receive an inexplicably haughty response from Dale Tremont (Rogers) when he attempts to woo her, but that's because she has mistaken him for her friend's husband. Love's eventual triumph is charted through a number of classic song and dance routines, including 'Cheek to Cheek' and 'Top Hat, White Tie and Tails'. 'Follow the Fleet' (1936) sees Astaire as Bake Baker, a new recruit in the Navy who comes to the rescue of sisters, Sherry (Rogers) and Harriet Hillard (Connie Martin). Lucille Ball, Betty Grable and Tony Martin appear in minor roles, while the lyrics are supplied by Irving Berlin; songs include 'Let's Face the Music and Dance', 'Get Thee Behind Me' and 'Let Yourself Go'. In 'Shall We Dance?' (1937) the pair once again romp through familiar romantic entanglements and a string of toe-tapping dance routines. Petrov (Astaire), a Russian ballet dancer, and musical comedy star Linda Keene (Rogers) are thrust into a marriage of convenience - she wants the shotgun wedding to be followed by an even quicker divorce, so that she can marry the man she really loves and retire from the stage. Not surprisingly, though, the path to true love takes a few unplanned diversions. Finally, in 'Carefree' (1938) they team up in the story of a psychiatrist who falls in love with one of his patients. A light musical with lyrics from Irving Berlin such as 'Change Partners' and 'I Used To Be Colour Blind'. 4 discs
