Home / Now Showing / TOP HAT / CAREFREE
TOP HAT, 1935, Warner Bros., 101 min, USA, Dir: Mark Sandrich.
In their most well-known musical, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers achieve sheer cinematic perfection as strangers who meet in a London hotel and are nearly broken apart by confusion over mistaken identities. With classic Irving Berlin songs including “Dancing Cheek to Cheek” and “Top Hat, White Tie and Tails.”
CAREFREE, 1938, Warner Bros., 83 min, USA, Dir: Mark Sandrich.
Featuring their longest screen kiss, this screwball musical pits Fred Astaire as Dr. Tony Flagg, a psychiatrist taking on patient Amanda Cooper (Ginger Rogers) – who is also the fiancée of his friend (Ralph Bellamy). Love and chaos ensue as Dr. Flagg tries to cure Amanda with hypnosis and ends up propelling her into a hilariously carefree state. Songs by Irving Berlin include “I Used to Be Color Blind” and the Oscar-nominated “Change Partners.” With Franklin Pangborn.
