This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

The Gay Divorcee (1934)
Oscar winner, The Continental revels in precision-dance joy, Cole Porter's Night and Day sways with timeless grace, and Fred and Ginger's first top billing sets the tone for more hits to come in this film.

Shall We Dance (1937)
A George and Ira Gershwin score has Fred tapping to Slap That Bass rhythms of a ship's engine room and the duo's Let's Call the Whole Thing Off skate routine. This film is pure bliss.

Swing Time (1936)
One of the team's greatest! The Jerome Kern/Dorothy Fields score goes from jubilant (Pick Yourself Up, Bojangles of Harlem) to sublime (the Oscar-winning The Way You Look Tonight, A Fine Romance).

Top Hat (1935)
The pair's best-remembered film features Fred's signature top hat, white tie and tails in the incomparably romantic cheek to cheek musical film. Irving Berlin's score is tip-top
