The Reviews for The Gay Divorcee (1934) 720p

"You know, you're beginning to fascinate me, and I resent that in any man"Reviewed byackstasisVote: 7/10

I've got to say, it took me a while to work up the courage to borrow 'The Gay Divorcée (1934)' from the university library. Fortunately, I balanced things out by also renting the steamy neo-noir 'Body Heat (1981)!' Needless to say, my ill-ease was not necessary. The 1930s was a carefree and innocent time for American cinema, and here I can assure the reader that the divorcée indicated by the title is merely happy. The film (my ninth from Astaire and Rogers) was the pair's second collaboration, and the first in which they were the stars. The story, adapted from the musical play "Gay Divorce," pretty much forms the template for their next half-dozen outings, a throwaway love-story fraught with screwball misunderstandings and elaborate art deco hotel- rooms. Ginger Rogers requires a divorce from her neglectful husband, and so tries to fake a love-affair (as you do) with a pompous Italian called Tonetti (Erik Rhodes). Fred Astaire comes along, falls in love with Ginger, but she mistakes him for the guy with whom she's supposed to be faking a love-affair.

'The Gay Divorcée' has an excellent cast. Fred Astaire, of course, exudes the same classiness and boyish charm that made him the stand-out in 'Flying Down to Rio (1933)' -- and just check out how gracefully he is able to dance and get dressed at the same time. Ginger Rogers, ever the gifted comedienne, shows wonderful composure, effortlessly making the conversion from apathy towards her male co-star to adoration. Edward Everett Horton, whose constant huffiness bounces amusingly off the carefree Astaire, is unfortunate enough to be given a dance number (opposite Betty Grable), through which he awkwardly and hilariously stumbles. Erik Rhodes, who was the highlight of 'Top Hat (1935),' again manages to steal the show, his pompous Italian "womaniser" a constant source of amusement. There's also Eric Blore, doing that butler thing he does best. Musical highlights include "Night and Day" and the Oscar- winning "Continental," which briefly abandons the long-takes you'd usually find in an Astaire film, instead lapsing into a rapid-fire Eisensteinian montage.

Chance Is the Fool's Name for FateReviewed byclaudio_carvalhoVote: 7/10

After staying in Paris on vacation, the American dancer Guy Holden (Fred Astaire) and his Londoner lawyer friend Egbert Fitzgerald (Edward Everett Horton) return to London by ship. Guy meets the wealthy American blonde Mimi Glossop (Ginger Rogers), who is traveling with her aunt Hortense Ditherwell (Alice Brady), in the harbor and Mimi asks him to call her aunt to open her luggage since her dress is trapped in the trunk. Guy tries to release her dress but he accidentally rips Mimi's dress. Guy lends his overcoat to her expecting to receive it back with a thank-you note with her name and address, but Mimi returns the coat without any card.

Meanwhile, Hortense seeks out Egbert, who is replacing his father in the office, expecting to get the divorce of Mimi and her husband, the geologist Cyril Glossop (William Austin). However, Cyril advises that it would be difficult to make Cyryl accepting the divorce and he suggest to Mimi to hire the "correspondent" Rodolfo Tonettito (Erik Rhodes) to stay with her in a hotel room. Meanwhile, Egbert would hire private eyes to arrive in Mimi's room and surprise the couple, forcing the divorce of Mimi and Cyril.

Egbert gives a password to Tonettito to identify Mimi and uses a sentence created by Guy – "Chance Is the Fool's Name for Fate". Mimi believes that Guy is her correspondent and stays with him in her room. When Tonettito arrives in her room, the disappointed Mimi learns the truth and feels better. But she is still married and can not marry Guy.

"The Gay Divorcée" is a great classic musical, with Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire shining and dancing. The long song "The Continental" was awarded with the Oscar of Best Music in 1935 and it is delightful to see the choreography of the dance.

In IMDb Trivia, there are interesting information about this film that I will not repeat in my review. In addiction, Ginger Rogers drives the mighty Duesenberg Model J, one of the most popular luxury cars as well as a status symbol in the United States and Europe. This car that cost between US$ 20,000.00 to US$ 25,000.00 in 1935 was driven by Clark Gable and Gary Cooper (the rare model SSJ 125), Al Capone, Greta Garbo, Howard Hughes, Mae West, Tyrone Power among others personalities. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Alegre Divorciada" ("The Gay Divorcée")

Sublime dancing, hilarious comedy, Art Deco time capsuleReviewed byjacksflicksVote: 10/10

It's astounding that this all-time classic doesn't get a better average score.

Nureyev said Astaire was the greatest dancer in the world, and Astaire is at his best here with his best partner, Ginger Rogers. No need to elaborate, just watch them in action.

Erik Rhodes should have got Best Supporting Oscar. He was also wonderful in Top Hat, but it's here he gets to say the immortal line, "Your wife is safe with Tonetti, he prefers spaghetti."

The clothes and the decor evoke an ideal of courtship as aesthetic rather than as rutting, as it is today. Elegance, grace and wit give even the silliest scenes more dignity than anything, fatuous "talents" can concoct today.

Some call the plot banal, but I think it's funny and inventive. Sure it's mistaken identity, which is indeed a cliché, but so what? It's what they do with it that matters. A professional co-respondent??? Of course it's silly but Hey, that's what farce is. And this musical farce is one of the very best.
