Swing Time (1936).




John "Lucky" Garnett is a gambler and dancer who, after showing up late for his wedding to Margaret, is told by her father that he must earn $25,000, in order to show that he is serious about marrying his daughter.. Lucky and his friend Cardetti catch the first train to New York, where Lucky meets Penny, a dance school instructor, and immediately falls in love with her. They are successful in the casino and on the dance floor.

SWING TIME, is the sixth teaming of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. I thought Swing Time was one of their most lavish and stylish films, with some wonderful songs and dance numbers.

  1. I think Swing Time is definitely one of my favorite Ginger and Fred movies as well.

  2. I love all the pictures, descpritions and lyrics. Thanks for posting all of this. You may want to retitle the top picture though. It is from Holiday Inn (1941) and not from Swing Time. Astaire is shown in a pose from "Be Careful It's My Heart" with Marjorie Reynolds.
