Astaire and Rogers perform ‘Cheek to Cheek’ – quite possibly the most romantic dance number of all time.
Dir Mark Sandrich
With Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Edward Everett Horton, Eric Blore
Many consider Top Hat to be Astaire and Rogers’ finest on-screen collaboration. With songs written especially for them by Irving Berlin, the film includes the classics ‘Isn’t This a Lovely Day?’, danced in a rain storm in Hyde Park, Fred’s incredible solo ‘Top Hat’ and the truly sublime ‘Cheek to Cheek’. When Ginger– wearing that famous floaty feather dress – is dipped by Fred, it can’t fail to give you goosebumps.
