An American in Paris (1951)

An American in Paris (1951) won an Oscar for Best Picture and was chosen for the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films of All Time (#68). But despite these accolades, it's a movie that will forever be in the shadow of Singin' in the Rain (1952). Of the many films Gene Kelly made in his career, it's these two that are the best remembered and most beloved. But always Singin', #1 and American, #2. read more...

Top Hat (1935)

According to legend, when Fred Astaire first auditioned for the movies, someone scrawled the following note: "can't sing, can't act, slightly balding, can dance a little." Of course, he went on to change the Hollywood musical forever, with his unassuming charisma, his light frame and his insistence on a certain kind of choreography. He shot each dance sequence, from head to foot, in its entirety, without cutting. That was a unique idea back then, but in today's world of music videos and Moulin Rouge, it's positively outrageous. read more...

Ball of Fire (1941)

This Howard Hawks comedy has never enjoyed the reputation of Hawks' classics Bringing Up Baby (1938) or His Girl Friday (1940), perhaps because it's longer and slower. But it's certainly no less funny or entertaining. Operating from a punchy, literate script by Billy Wilder (only a year away from his own directorial debut) and Charles Brackett, Ball of Fire spins off from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with its seven bachelor professors, each working on a section of a new encyclopedia. read more...

The Gay Divorcee (1934)

Warner Home Video has released a second Fred & Ginger box set, featuring five more of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers' ten movies together. The first box blew the wad by including both favorites Top Hat (1935) and Swing Time (1936), but this second box has its pleasures as well. read more...

The Band Wagon (1953)

The vibrantly talented but viciously uneven director Vincente Minnelli turned in his most streamlined and cohesive film with The Band Wagon, starring Fred Astaire as Tony Hunter, a washed-up movie star hoping for a comeback on Broadway. His married playwright pals (played by Oscar Levant and Nanette Fabray, no doubt inspired by the husband-and-wife screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green) write a comedy for him, and ballet star Gaby (Cyd Charisse) signs on, but egotistical director Jeffrey Cordova (Jack Buchanan) turns it into a pretentious Faust adaptation. read more...
