One of the greatest music and dance stars in the history of motion pictures, Fred rose from a fairly inauspicious start, where a studio exec remarked: "Can't sing. Can't act. Slightly balding.

Swing Time (Dir. George Stevens, 1936): Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers star in arguably their finest film together; packed with exhilarating dance routines and a marvellous score, this is an indispensable musical classic! Swing Time is full of magical moments including a complex and delightful routine to 'Pick Yourself Up', a luminous turn to 'Waltz In Swing Time' and Astaire's breathtaking solo to 'Bojangles Of Harlem'.

Top Hat (Dir.

You Were Never Lovelier (Dir. William A. Seiter, 1942): In this lavish Hollywood musical, the headstrong daughter (Hayworth) of a powerful Argentine hotelier has to contend with her father's attempts to get her to marry...
