Swing Time

Gambling hoofer Lucky Garnett (Fred Astaire) leaves his bride standing at the altar one too many times and now must prove himself by going on the road to amass a nest egg worthy of his bride’s (and her father’s) forgiveness. But who knew that along that road, he’d bump into dancing instructor Ginger Rogers—the woman who could do everything he did but in heels and backwards. Prosperity is surely just around the corner in this Depression-era anti-depressant filled with the very best Astaire-Rogers dance sequences, including “Pick Yourself Up,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” and “Never Gonna Dance.”
