Silver Screen Icons: Astaire & Rogers: Volume 1 Two-disc set includes:

The Gay Divorcee (1934)

Cole Porter's 1932 Broadway hit, "Gay Divorce," became a perfect debut starring vehicle for dance legends-to-be Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, who play an American dancer and a geologist’s estranged wife, respectively, whose inevitable romance is sidetracked by a case of mistaken identity in an English seaside resort. With Betty Grable, Alice Brady. The score includes Porter’s "Night and Day," and four songs written expressly for the screen, including "The Continental," the first recipient of the Best Song Academy Award. 105 min. BW/Rtg: NR

Top Hat (1935)

What is arguably the best--and inarguably the most successful--of the Astaire-Rogers musicals features a classic Irving Berlin score, including "Cheek to Cheek," "Top Hat, White Tie and Tails," and "Isn't This a Lovely Day (To Be Caught in the Rain)?" Fred is American dancer Jerry Travers, who’s uprooted to London where he falls for the lovely Dale Tremont (Ginger), who's staying at the same hotel. With Edward Everett Horton, Helen Broderick, and Lucille Ball as a flower girl. 100 min. BW/Rtg: NR

Carefree (1938)

Dr. Tony Flagg's friend, Steven, has problems in the relationship with his fiancee, Amanda, so he persuades her to visit Dr. Flagg. After some minor misunderstandings, she falls in love with Dr. Flagg. When he tries to use hypnosis to strengthen her feelings for Steven, things get complicated.

Shall We Dance (1937)

American ballet dancer Peter P. Peters (Fred Astaire)--billed as the Russian "Petrov"--and musical-comedy tap dancer Linda Keene (Ginger Rogers), both in need of a boost in their sagging careers, step into a headline-grabbing romance cooked up by her manager...and it's anyone's guess what romantic twists will follow. The classic George and Ira Gershwin score includes "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "They All Laughed," and "They Can't Take That Away from Me." With Edward Everett Horton. 109 min. BW/Rtg: NR Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
