Ginger Rogers, publicity shot for Gold Diggers of 1933 (Busby Berkeley) “Ere-way in-ay the oney-may!” (Were In The Money)
Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933) ~ Various people, including director Mervyn LeRoy and choreographer Busby Berkeley, have claimed credit for Ginger Rogers' pig-Latin rendition of "We're in the Money". In her autobiography, Rogers gives the credit to then Warner Bros executive Darryl F. Zanuck.

42nd Street (1933) Warner Baxter, Ruby Keeler, Ginger Rogers Directed by Lloyd Bacon - I love this movie. The big tap dance number makes me smile every time. Chorus girl makes good, becomes a star when she stands in for the injured leading lady. "Sawyer, you're going out a youngster, but you've got to come back a star!" The book calls this the "Grandmother of all the backstage musicals."

This is my contribution to the Dynamic Duos in Classic Film Blogathon hosted by Once Upon a Screen and Classic Movie Hub. Do check out the other postings, which cover a wide range of artists. If there is any one dance number which sums up the appeal of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, perhaps it's…
The Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers films just keep on cruising in this era of the musical tournament. It began with 4 of their films competing and now there are 3 left. And the only reason that is, because one of their films had to face off against another one. Eighth seed Flying Down To Rio upset top seed The Jazz Singer 11-3. Fifth seed Swing Time beat fourth seed Shall We Dance 11-3. Third seed Top Hat just rolled over sixth seed Broadway Melody of 1929 by the count of 15-0. And finally the venerable 42nd Street edged out Gold Diggers of 1933 by the score of 9-5, which was the closest of the four matches. So here are the match-ups for the semi-final round: 5 SWING TIME (1936) VS 8 FLYING DOWN TO RIO (1933) ---------------------------------- 2 42ND STREET (1933) VS 3 TOP HAT (1935) Begins today and runs through Tuesday. The winners of these matches will then face off to decide you will grab the first spot in the final four of the musical tournament. Odds are it will be a Fred and Ginger film. Just saying.
Ginger Rodgers, made a total of 73 films, and is best known for her role as Fred Astaire's romantic interest and dancing partner in ten Hollywood musical films. She also achieved success in many other film roles, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Kitty Foyle (1940). Rogers' first movie performances were films made in 1929, Night in the Dormitory, A Day of a Man of Affairs, and Campus Sweethearts. Shortly after opening in Top Speed, Rogers was to star on Broadway in Girl Crazy the musical made Ginger a star. She made her screen breakthrough in the film 42nd Street (1933). She went on to make films with RKO Radio Pictures, Flying Down to Rio (1933), where she performed with Dolores del Río and Fred Astaire. Rogers was best known for her partnership with Fred Astaire. From 1933 to 1939, they made nine musical films: Flying Down to Rio (1933), The Gay Divorcee (1934), Roberta (1935), Top Hat (1935), Follow the Fleet (1936), Swing Time (1936), Shall We Dance (1937), and Carefree (1938), The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (1939) and a tenth The Barkleys of Broadway(1949). Ginger Rodgers, combined her dancing skills, beauty and her talent as a dramatic actress and comedienne, complementing Astaire, who sometimes struggled as an actor and was not considered handsome. They had wonderful on screen chemistry in their performances in the comic numbers "I'll Be Hard to Handle" from Roberta (1935), "I'm Putting all My Eggs in One Basket" from Follow the Fleet (1936) and "Pick Yourself Up" from Swing Time (1936). Astaire made use of her flexible back in classic romantic dances such as "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" from Roberta (1935), "Cheek to Cheek" from Top Hat (1935) and "Let's Face the Music and Dance" from Follow the Fleet (1936). One of Gingers best performances with Astaire was in the "Waltz in Swing Time" from Swing Time (1936). She tried to avoid solo dance performances and performed only one: "Let Yourself Go."

Fred & Ginger - love the quote saying Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did except she did it going backwards and in heels :0)
tap dancing - If you're a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers lover like I am, and IF you've ever 'tried' to tap dance...it's NOT easy! Tap dancing is a FABULOUS way to tone the body, especially the buttocks and legs. It gives you an unbelievable cardio workout, and is LOTS of FUN!

This gorgeous ostrich feather dress worn by Ginger Rogers was a backless, bias-cut marvel. Worn in 1935's TOP HAT, the dress had an ethereal, floating feel about it. Per Ginger's autobiography, the feathers flying off the dress drove Fred Astaire crazy in take after take. At the end of the shoot her gave her a gold feather for her charm bracelet as well as the nickname "Feathers".

FRED ASTAIRE AND GINGER ROGERS Allan Scott and Dwight Taylor (screenplay, based on a play by Sándor Faragó, Alada Laszlo, and Károly Nóti), Irving Berlin and Max Steiner (music), Mark Sandrich (director) Top Hat / 1935 With great song and dance numbers such as "Isn't This a Lovely Day," "Fancy Free," "The Piccolino" and "Top Hat, White Tie and Tails," it seems almost impossible to select just one dance! But of all Astaire's and Rogers' performances throughout their years as a duo, the most memorable of all may be their brilliant "Cheek to Cheek." In terms of the plot, the number might never have happened. Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers) is furious with Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire), whom she believes to be her good friend Madge Hardwick's husband, Horace. Travers has flirted with Tremont, but Madge seemingly doesn't care, for, in reality, she is trying to marry off Travers, suggesting Tremont as the perfect match. It is with due hesitation, accordingly, that Tremont accepts his offer to dance. As he begins the love song, moreover, she turns several times to Madge, pondering what to do, but Madge merely motions that they should get closer together. The dance begins as a simple waltz, with Travers (Astaire) stopping several times to sing the famous lyrics ("Heaven, I'm in Heaven / And my heart beats so loudly I can hardly speak / And I seem to find the happiness I seek / When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek"). After each stop they dance for a while, until suddenly, at the music's crescendo, they swing upstairs, she spinning before laterally jumping, Astaire moving into a soft tap. Both leap, moving backwards, then forward, until in a final pas de deau, Rogers being gently lifted before Astaire lets her down, the two spin, returning to the quiet waltz. Perhaps the most notable thing about this dance is Roger's beautiful white feathered dress (at least it appears white on the screen; the lining, so I have read, in reality was blue) that is so absolutely breathtaking a costume that we might forgive them, he in his tuxedo and she in the gown, if they merely stood there talking. Yet their graceful dancing on top, equally transports us into "Heaven." Astaire and the director had tried to dissuade Rogers from wearing the dress, and as she began to dance, just as they feared, the feathers flew off every time she made a move. Astaire described it as something akin to "a chicken being attacked by a coyote." You can still see some few feathers floating through the air at scene's end. And after this event, Rogers' nickname became "feathers." Los Angeles, April 16, 2011
