Celebrating 350 years of the moving and projected image
#1 - DANCING LADY (1933) Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Franchot Tone
Early MGM musical with an eclectic cast including Fred Astaire in his film debut (fifty minutes in) and The Three Stooges. Crawford’s first incarnation as a hoofer meets her second as the archetypal ambitious, capable femme fatale. Astonishingly, she is Astaire’s first screen dance partner! Quirky but quality variety entertainment.
