Previously I have seen some ‘old’ movies, but this 1936 movie is the one of the most enjoyable one.

Actually, I have been looking for this movie, and found it in unexpected place (Vietnam). I am really curious about Fred Astaire.
And I want to hear “The Way You Look Tonight” in this movie that won Oscar

So I watched Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing. I know nothing about dancing but their dance is amazing. Read in one review, that they rehearsed so many hours. The Bojangle scene is really a masterpiece.

The story is very simple and ‘unbelievable’. Fred was late for his wedding. Instead being dumped, he’s given chance to “re-marry” after getting USD 50K.
So with sheer dumb luck, he went to New York, and met Ginger.

The songs are faboulous, especially the closing when they sang “Fine Romance” and “The Way You Look Tonight” at the same time. “The Way You Look Tonight” won Oscar that year.
