Overview

It's more Ginger Rogers than Fred Astaire, and more comedy than singing and dancing in Carefree, an Astaire-Rogers entry into the screwball comedy sweepstakes which features a top-of-the-line Irving Berlin score "Change Partners," "I Used to be Color Blind," "The Night is Filled with Music". Fred Astaire plays Dr. Tony Flagg, a psychiatrist, who enters the psyche of Amanda Cooper Ginger Rogers, a radio singer whom Tony's friend Stephen Arden Ralph Bellamy takes to see him. It seems Arden thinks that Amanda needs psychiatric help since she can't reach a decision regarding Stephen's proposal of marriage to her. As Tony explores her subconscious dream life, she falls in love with him. Tony feels that her love is temporary -- merely a sign of transference. To channel her love in the right direction, Tony hypnotizes her to believe that she is in love with Stephen. But then things become more complicated when Tony comes to realize that he, in fact, is in love with Amanda himself. He now has to figure out a way to bring her out of her hypnosis and get her back to normal so that they can both fall into the clinch.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
While Volume 1 in The Astaire & Rogers Collection features the best-known films of this phenomenally popular 1930s screen duo, Volume 2 showcases Fred and Ginger in five more eminently entertaining musical comedies, each boasting top-drawer production values, excellent casts, and hit songs by some of America’s greatest popular composers. Flying Down to Rio 1933 actually stars Gene Raymond and Dolores Del Rio, two largely forgotten stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age, but supporting players Astaire and Rogers -- paired for the first time -- steal the show with their high-spirited stepping. Among Rio's more memorable sequences is one of the daffiest production numbers ever committed to celluloid, featuring scantily clad chorus girls riding atop old-fashioned biplanes. The Gay Divorcee 1934, the team’s first “official” starring vehicle, takes its title and premise from a Broadway smash. While only one Cole Porter tune made the jump from stage to screen, luckily it was a little ditty entitled “Night and Day.” A non-Porter song, “The Continental,” nabbed the film an Oscar for best song of the year, as well as inspiring a terrific Astaire-Rogers dance number. Another Broadway hit, Roberta 1935, was similarly refitted for Astaire and Rogers, with Irene Dunne and Randolph Scott lending marquee appeal and Jerome Kern providing a score that spawned several standards, most memorably “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.” Carefree 1938 has its stretches of corny comedy but also sports some nifty Irving Berlin tunes, including “Change Partners.” The last of the RKO series of Astaire-Rogers pairings, 1939’s The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, cast Fred and Ginger as the popular early-20th-century husband-and-wife dance team; heavier on plot than effervescent dance numbers, the film signaled the dissolution of a brilliant partnership. Astaire and Rogers would reunite at M-G-M in 1949 for The Barkleys of Broadway, but it’s their glorious run at RKO that ensured Hollywood immortality for the incomparable team.

    ASTAIRE & ROGERS VOLUME 2

    This is for you if you are a fan of great classic musicals with Fred and Ginger. Some of their best moments in dance (including the first - FLYING DOWN TO RIO) as well as classic music by Cole Porter and others. Of course there are the great cast of supporting characters, ie: Eric Blore, Everett Everett Horton, and many others. Great dancing, fabulous music and fun!! ENJOY
