Perhaps the best remembered of the 10 Astaire/Rogers musicals, Top Hat has it all: Art Deco elegance, a wonderfully addled storyline, loopy support from skilled farceurs and the incomparable chemistry of the two leads cheek-to-cheeking to Irving Berlin’s finest film score. Amazon 4.6 stars from over 66 users

The quintessential Fred-and-Ginger vehicle, Top Hat features some of the most glorious, memorable dance sequences ever filmed. The Irving Berlin score includes perhaps the duo’s best-known number, “Cheek to Cheek,” as well as Astaire’s signature solo number, “Top Hat, White Tie, and Tails.” Read full Decent Films review: rated A, Superb artistic-entertainment for Teens & Up
