Customer Review

on 15 January 2012
This lovely film with the charming Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, is an American biographical musical comedy, which tells the story of husband and wife team of ballroom dancers Vernon and Irene Castle. The Castles were prominent figures of the 1910s and the 1920s, who had a major impact popularising ballroom dancing and were ahead of their time as far as human and animal rights were concerned, Irene was a fashion icon and trendsetter, popularising new hairstyles and designers. She even designed some of her own clothes, notably Ginger Rogers' costumes in the film are designed by Irene Castle herself.

Based on Irene's biographical book "My Husband and My Memories of Vernon Castle" ,directed by H. C. Potter, and written by Oscar Hammerstein II, Dorothy Yost and Richard Sherman, this film is a fine tribute to this amazing couple and with its bitter-sweet ending is the best Astaire and Rogers film.
