The Return of Fred and Ginger


Hi Everyone! Well, October was a rough month, but it ended on a very positive note with the wedding of my lovely niece Jenni this past Saturday. She is the first of my nieces or nephews to marry, and the entire family was in town, which is always something to celebrate.

Now that October is almost past, I can return to my regular postings. And, the rest of the year is dedicated to my favorite screen duo, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Remember back in November 2010 when I reviewed "Flying Down to Rio"? Well, it was my plan to do all ten of the duo's films within one year. However, I got sidetracked in fall 2011 and stopped after only four movies.

My holiday treat is to do the other six between now and the end of December, followed by a special countdown devoted just to them.

In case you missed the previous posts, here they are:

"Flying Down to Rio" 
"The Gay Divorcee"
"Roberta" 
"Top Hat"

Starting on Sunday, I'll resume the reviews. Thank you for your patience with Classicfilmboy!
