Friday 25th October
Top Hat (1935)
93 minutes – certificate U – in English
Directed by Mark Sandrich
Starring Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Edward Everett Horton
Two Americans abroad, one a model on holiday, the other an entertainer in a revue show, have a
meet-not-so-cute. They get off on the wrong foot following an annoyance, and then tap around a
love-hate flirtation founded on mistaken identity and misunderstanding.
With apparently effortless grace, the duo tread the boards across stunning Art Deco sets, which
are ravishing recreations of London and Venice, albeit with rather inaccurate detail. With dazzling
footwork, and numbers by Irving Berlin, topped by the sublime ‘Cheek to Cheek’, this feel-good
screwball rom-com is one of the very best Hollywood dance musicals.
Nominated for 4 Academy Awards, for best picture, art direction, dance direction and original song.
Among the 10 best films of the year by Film Daily.
Voted number 15 in the American Film Institute poll of the greatest movie musicals of all time, and
in the top 5 by Filmsite and The Guinness Book of Film.
Counted among the top 100 films by critics Roger Ebert, Barry Norman, Filmsite, and Time Out.
