About the Event

Ginger Roger and Fred Astaire, two icons of the silver screen star in the magical musical Swing time a touchstone for Hollywood elegance, style and taste. It was one a several musicals the duo would make in the 1930s, and there is no denying the electric chemistry and their joy of performing. Swing Time is one of their best films, with witty dialogue and a convoluted plot that serves mainly to link the extraordinary dance sequences together. Astaire was a perfectionist who believed that every dance should be filmed as one continuous take, with few if, any cutaways, a rarity in today’s cinema of fast cuts and changing angles. It meant both performers had to be at their best, with Ginger Rogers doing ‘everything Fred did – backwards and in heels.’
