The top hat dancing with Fred and Ginger
"Nothing now could take the wind out of my sails. Because I'm invited to step out this evening with top hat and white tie and tails." Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire) is joyful, lively, and dances lightly in tails, top hat and with a large troupe of dancers in tow, to the tune of Top Hat, White Tie and Tails, expressing in music the happiness of being able to wear his chicest clothes for a formal party to which he was invited, where elegance is absolutely de rigueur.
It's 1935 and in the movie theatres one of the best musicals in the history of cinema has just come out: Top Hat (Mark Sandrich). What we have just described is just one of the many musical performances in a movie that features an eternal couple of cinema and dancing: Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Between tap-dancing solos, society events, and the extraordinary music of Irving Berlin and George Gershwin, Fred and Ginger express their unique grace and style in confirmation of the great talent that has consecrated them for ever as true icons of the entertainment world.Who the real star of the film is we can understand from the title.
But for Fred Astaire, the elegance and style of the top hat are qualities that he did not want to do without even in daily life, so that the most famous images of him appearing in public always show him with his faithful companion perched on his head!
