Never Gonna Dance
For the DVDholics among you, here's the cover art for the first DVD set of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movies, comprising Top Hat, Swing Time, Follow the Fleet, Shall We Dance and The Barkleys of Broadway. The other five will follow in a box set to be issued later. It seems to me that Warner Home Video is kind of shooting itself in the collective corporate foot by issuing the two most popular titles (Top Hat and Swing Time) in the first collection, but maybe volume 2 will appeal to the many fans of Dolores Del Rio vehicles and Vernon and Irene Castle biopics.
