From a play by: Alexander Faragó; Aladar Laszlo
Lyrics and Music by: Irving Berlin
Producer: Pandro S. Berman
Keywords: Musical Comedy
Jerry Travers interrupts Dale Tremont's slumber with his exuberant tap dancing in the hotel room directly above hers. They flirt, but the next day Dale mistakes Jerry for producer Horace Hardwick, who is very married; confusion ensues. Of the ten pairings of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Top Hat is at or near the top. Received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Art Direction, Best Dance Direction, and Best Original Song, "Cheek to Cheek." Entered 1990 into the National Film Registry.
Review by Ninna (posted on 20-Apr-2009)
As usual Mr Astaire danced his feet off, & Miss Rogers was beautiful as ever. In this movie Mr Astaire became attracted to Miss Rogers but she mistook him for her friend Miss Helen Broderick's husband. It is a treat to watch! Mr Astaire's danced to the great Irving Berlin's music. This movie also includes Mr Edeward Everett Horton & Mr Eric Blore, who were always very talented. Miss Roger's wardrobe is fantastic.
