Top Hat (1935) Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers star in this screwball musical comedy about
a woman who mistakenly thinks her best friend’s husband is in love with her. Considered to be
the dancing duo’s best film, it features a classic Irving Berlin score, including “Cheek to Cheek.”
The film was written by Allan Scott and Dwight Taylor and was directed by Mark Sandrich.
It was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Art Direction, Best Dance Direction and Best Original Song.
