Iconic dancing duo Fred and Ginger brought a joy of performance, grace and humor to their films the made them the embodiment of early Hollywood glamour.
Swing Time is one of their most beloved pairings, in which bandleader Astaire gets cold feet on his wedding day. Astaire's bride-to-be Betty Furness will give him a second chance, providing he proves himself responsible enough to earn $25,000.
Astaire naturally tries to avoid earning that amount once he falls in love with dance instructor Ginger Rogers. Numerous complications, laughs and dance routines ensue set to the famous Jerome Kern-Dorothy Fields score includes such standards-to-be as 'Pick Yourself Up', 'A Fine Romance', 'The Way You Look Tonight', 'Never Gonna Dance' and 'Bojangles of Harlem'.
