Summary
Fred Astaire plays a gambler intent on raising $25,000 in New York in order to marry his fiance back home. Romantic complications occur when he meets dancing teacher, Ginger Rogers. Memorable songs include "The Way you look tonight" which won an Academy Award. Swing time, the fifth in the series of Astaire-Rogers musicals, is one of the best, due to the Jerome Kern score, the dramatic dance sequences and beautiful art direction.
Note
Special features: commentary by John Mueller, author of Astaire Dancing; new featurette "The swing of things: swing time step by step"; musical "Short hotel a la swing"; classic cartoon "Bingo Crosbyana"; theatrical trailer.
