He and Pop go to New York where they run into Penny, a dancing instructor.

The Good & Bad Of 'Swing Time'Reviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 7/10

This is one of the most famous Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musicals.

GOOD - There is one tremendous dance scene in here by Fred Astaire which includes three big shadows on the wall in back of him as he dances. I think it's one of Fred's all-time best numbers; very inventive and always great to watch. There are also a few good dance scenes with Fred and Ginger Rogers. Some of the songs from this film became "standards," such as "The Way You Look Tonight" and "Pick Yourself Up." The script is corny but at least interesting for the most part. This was my first look at Betty Furness as a younger woman ("Margaret Watson") and I thought she was pretty.

BAD - Same old, same old with these Astaire-Rogers films, namely: (1) marriages made out of "spite;" (2) a very annoying character, this time "Pop Cardetti," played by Victor Moore, and (3) a very stupid ending.

OVERALL - At least at the end, we see the couple getting married for the right reason: love (duh). It's an okay but I think an overrated one. There are a number of other Astaire films I'd choose over this, but then again, to see either Fred or Ginger dancing can never be underestimated. They were a fabulous team and great individual talents.

There's something special about all of the Astaire-Rogers movies, and "Swing Time" is no exception. Directed by George Stevens, it tells the story of a dancer and a gambler - not seen as much of a catch by his future father-in-law - who, after he misses his wedding, goes to New York. He promises his fiancée's father that he will return, solvent, and ask again for his daughter's hand in marriage. Once in New York, he falls for Ginger Rogers, who was never prettier than in this film. One thing leads to another, and the wind up as dance partners.

Eric Blore, Helen Broderick, and Victor Moore supply able support, and the film has a beautiful Jerome Kern score: "Pick Yourself Up," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "A Fine Romance" being a few of the numbers.

There are two knockout pieces in this film - Astaire's tribute to Bill "Bojangles" Robinson is one of the most stunning numbers Astaire ever did. He manages to wear blackface and not have it be offensive, as it's very light makeup to suggest his portrayal of Robinson. The number, with its accompanying huge dancing shadows, is magnificent. And the final number - "Never Gonna Dance" surely is one of their top dances ever, with that incredible deco set, the double curving stairways, and Ginger in that glorious dress.

It's hard to sum up how their dancing lifts you up and out of whatever ails you. Definitely their smoothness, footwork, chemistry, and glamor reach out to my soul every time I see them.

Swing Time is a sweet time!Reviewed bygapeach17Vote: 7/10

I completely agree with my fellow film buffs that "Swing Time" ties with "Top Hat" as Fred and Ginger's best musical together. While "Top Hat" has an elegant, almost dreamy atmosphere to it, "Swing Time" gets a gold star for its more real (albeit musical numbers) and honest feel. Fred and Ginger just shine as dapper Lucky and sassy but classy Penny. One of their best dance numbers together is the spontaneous and fun "Pick Yourself Up", where Fred is in overly formal attire and Ginger wears a cute black business dress. Fred's big moment in the sun, however, is the legendary "Bojangles of Harlem" number. Many people today object to it because Fred dances in black face, but I feel it's totally misunderstood. Instead of the awful, grotesque black face Al Jolson wore (pitch black face with white lips), Fred wears tasteful theatrical makeup (think Laurence Olivier as Othello). Also, Fred isn't doing a jig in a cotton field and eating watermelon; the backdrop is a city with glamorous backup dancers. It's not a racist parody, it's one great dancer's tribute to another (that's who Bojangles was, after all). Forget what's on Fred's face, just watch him display a talent no one sees anymore. Because that's what it is: talent and tribute, not hate.
