An Astaire-Rogers musical.
Starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers
with Edward Everett Horton, Helen Broderick and Eric Blore.

Featuring the ever-popular Irving Berlin numbers, 'Top Hat', 'White Tie and Tails', 'Cheek to Cheek', 'Isn't this a lovely day?', and 'Piccolino'.
The greatest of all musical-comedy teams in the cinema, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers made many films which are evergreen in the memory of an older generation, and no less popular with the younger. 'Top Hat' is, by general agreement, the best of them all. It is a backstage story, and the setting is London, with a trip to Venice.
