Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, in the 1937 classic 'Shall We Dance' - the pair's seventh film together. (As Katharine Hepburn famously quipped, "she gives him sex, he gives her class!") This scene is unusual in that the main activity for which the pair was famous - dancing - is completely absent. Instead, the scene relies upon skills which some would say are not the stars' strongest: straight acting for Rogers, and straight singing for Astaire! Yet it remains a famous and well-loved scene.

Perfection. We have digressed, it's like living in the Dark Ages and looking at the Splendor of Rome!

Right, whoever voted this two stars is just stupid. This is a classic, emotional song from "Shall We Dance." This is going straight to my favourites.

PS: I've posted a few Fred Astaire videos myself, if you wanna check 'em out.
