Top Hat 1935
Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire) is an American hoofer arriving in London to help out his pal, producer Horace Hardwick (Edward Everett Horton), with a new song-and-dance show. One evening while in Hardwick's hotel room, Jerry is overcome with the urge to tap madly around the room, much to the annoyance of sleepy downstairs neighbor Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers). Dale storms up to complain, and Jerry falls for her. Over the course of a few days, during which the two dance under a park gazebo in a heavy downpour, she begins to fall for him too. But a letter she receives from her friend Madge (Helen Broderick) convinces her that Jerry (whose name she doesn't know) is really Horace, Madge's husband, so Dale takes off for Venice with her Italian dress designer Alberto Beddini (Erik Rhodes). Romantic complications ensue until Horace and Madge set everything right and unite the two young lovers.
