This is the epitome of classic Astaire/Rogers pairings. Not only is the score by Irving Berlin memorable, but so are the many pair and solo dance numbers. The plot itself is sort of standard, but, the real star of the film is the dancing, anyway.

A classic Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movie. Top Hat is one of the best of the pair. Lots of great dance numbers both for the pair and for Fred by himself. The songs are also interesting. The story is also better then most in this comedy of mistaken identity.

What separates this movie from the rest of the Fred & Gingers is the music by Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. Robert Osborne said that this movie had a very similar plot to their movie before this. Overall, it was just one notch better than their other stuff. Dancing movies aren't usually my thing, but it was fun.

In effect, the lady below the room namely Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers) complains to the manager and approaches the person responsible for the raucous. The plot when Dale mistakes Jerry for Horace, who is married to the wise and charming Madge (Helen Broderick). The soundtrack and choregraphy is a given, which was exceptional. The screenplay was intellectual with lines: "All is fair in love and war, and this is revolution!" and "In dealing with a girl or horse, one just lets nature take its course." from Jerry and "My dear, when you're as old as I am, you take your men as you find them if you can find them." from Madge. This critic feels the scene stealer was Helen Broderick, whose convinci...
