    Am new to Fred and Ginger movies but am amazed at how good they are.

    I have a "Greatest Hits from the Movies" type music CD and its version of Miss Rogers singing "They All Laughed" has a second verse (Rockerfeller Centre, Hershey Chocolate Bar etc).

    In the film version I have (Fred Astaire Collection DVD 1) there is an edit at the end of the first verse (a quick shot of her foppish fiancé) and then the next line (Darling, let’s take a bow) is the end of the second verse. No Rockerfeller Centre, no chocolate bar.

    My question (finally) for the trivia buffs is….was this edit in the original movie?

    I’m hoping that somewhere floating around there’s a pre-DVD era version of the film with an un-edited version of the song.

    Many thanks

    Miguel

    So I was wondering who you fans were?

    Im Nikki. Im 16 from Ediburgh Scotland and I have been a fan of this film since I was ill one day a couple of years ago and was sent home from school and stayed at my Grandads and I watched this on the TV.

    Thanks to anyone who’s watched the Partners in Rhythm DVD from the Astaire/Rogers Ultimate Collection, and can give us a review of it.

    I’m trying to decide whether or not to get the Ultimate Collection. Maybe Partners in Rhythm is so good that I need the Ultimate Collection.

    Also, what do you think of all the other stuff included in the Ultimate Collection: the press kit, photos, CD, etc?

    Thanks again for a review.

    I feel silly for saying this, but for some reason I almost cried during "They Can’t Take That Away From Me". It’s just such a sweet song and she’s finally realizing that this man really loves her. anyone agree?

    How ’bout a shave?

    Is the 2004 movie with jennifer lopez and susan surandon based on this, or does it just happen to have the same title? If it’s two versions of the same story, then i’d like to know how much is the same between two.

    what’s happening to the planet,

    do you have some water? can i have it?

    did your well run dry too,

    isn’t it sad what the new climate is doing to both me and you,

    all around the world,

    seem to be signs of what we’ve done to the earth,

    a waiting disaster,

    got to work faster,

    polluted air,

    cities that can’t see the sky clear,

    this black smoke,

    will make us all choke,

    poisoned water,

    and it keeps getting warmer,

    untill i can hardly stand it,

    save us all, save the planet.

    I was just wondering if anyone knows what breed of dog Ginger Rogers’ character has. I thought maybe it was a Yorkshire Terrier with its hair cut short but i’m not sure.

    I LOVE this movie. My favorite part is when they are on the ferry, and Fred Astair sings to Ginger Rogers in the fog. How romantic!

    Jerome Cowan, who plays Ginger Rogers’ manager, tells Ginger he was planning on taking her and her fiance to an engagement dinner. Ginger replies "It’s nice of you to think of Joe and me" to which Jerome says "Oh, I’m always thinking about Joe." Ginger reacts with a wry smile as the picture fades and the scene ends.

    This certainly sounds like an overt gay reference in an era where you didn’t see that very often. What do you think?

    Alas, I’ve found a flaw in the way IMDb lists the casts and crew for musicals, one that I hope can be corrected. For Shall We Dance, for instance, you can find out that the incidental score was written by Robert Russell Bennett, but not a word about the original songs by George and Ira Gershwin. I found the same omission in the listing for Swing Time, which fails to mention the all-important Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields and for Meet Me in St. Louis, which doesn’t say a thing about the authors of such famed tunes as "The Trolley Song" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." This seems a fatal flaw for the era when a musical was only as good as its songs.

    This is the 4th Astaire/Rogers movie I’ve seen, and so far it’s the funniest one.

    But the much-ballyhooed rollerskates number was not too impressive. They just keep skating in a circle, making it a confined number like the gazebo in Top Hat.

    But they’re on skates for god’s sake, I wanted to feel a sense of freedom and have them take off into the park. They just kept making circles. Ginger Rogers also doesn’t lift her feet off the ground very much at all.

    Both decisions for me made the number leaden. "She Loves Me" with Gene Kelly cuttingloose on skates in "It’s Always Fair Weather" is better.

    I watched this movie over the weekend and I can’t get that song out of my head! What a great song. I just wish it went a little longer. But I guess they always did short songs in movies like that at that time.

    I’d like to find out the colour of the stunning flower dress Ginger Rogers wears in the dance number "They All Laughed".

    DVD covers show it variously as tinted red / black and white / pale yellow or bright red (this seems unlikely)

    Anyone out there know ?

    Did anyone else notice the 1930s looney tunes cartoon at the end of the VHS? It suddenly came on and I was amazed!
