Most romantic film #34: Top Hat (1935)

This is the most successful of the Rogers-Astaire partnership. I do recommend each and every one, but this one shows off the chemistry between the pair beautifully.

It is full of Irving Berlin masterpieces: “Cheek to Cheek,” “Top Hat, White Tie and Tails,” and others.

The plot revolves around Jerry Travers (Astaire) initial unrequited love for Dale Tremont (Rogers). This is the usual slim storyline, but the decor, costumes, singing, and dancing are  exquisite. Rogers is beautiful, while Astaire is his usual charming self.

It is a funny, delightful film.
