Ten Classic Musical Films: Part 1   

This class will feature 10 classic musical films featuring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, starting with 1921’s “Flying Down to Rio” and finishing with 1949’s “The Barkley’s of Broadway.” The other eight are “The Gay Divorcee,” “Roberta,” “Top Hat,” “Follow the Fleet,” “Swing Time,” “Shall We Dance,” “Carefree,” and “The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle.” A handout for each film will be provided at the preceding session; for the first meeting, a handout will be available that day. Before each film, the instructor will point out anything of particular note and will entertain questions and comments. A guided discussion will follow the end of each film. Students need bring nothing more than a desire to see these special musical films that are true classics and still enjoyable, no matter how many times one views them.

NOTE: This begins the four-year (12-term) series of classic musical films first introduced eight years ago and introduced again four years ago. There will be no class meeting on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday January 15.
