Top Hat

Classic musical staring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers.

Dancer Jerry Travers meets his friend and producer Horace Hardwick at the conservative Thackeray Club in London and Horace invites Jerry to spend the night in his hotel. Jerry is excited with the show and has a "dance attack", tap dancing in Horace's room and disturbing guest Dale Tremont who is lodged in the room below. Dale goes upstairs to complain about the noise and meets Jerry and they flirt with each other. The next morning, Dale mistakes the single Jerry for the married Horace and becomes upset with her flirtation. When she learns that Horace is the husband of her friend Helen Broderick, there are many complications and confusions in the lives of the two friends.

    10 years since i last saw this on the big screen, which marked the first Fred & Ginger film i'd ever seen. Still magic.

    I will try and make it over, though it may be brief as I'm going to A Hard Day's Night with Dick Lester intro beforehand, so it will depend on how much time there is in between films. Possibly won't make it if very limited gap. Five years since last saw Top Hat and over 10 since last saw it at BFI on big screen so looking forward to it.
