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.

Overall, it was just one notch better than their other stuff. Dancing movies aren't usually my thing, but it was fun.

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...
