The Barkleys of Broadway

After 10 years apart, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers re-team for their final film, written by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and directed by Charles Walters. The story mirrors real-life creative tensions the two shared, with Astaire playing driven musical comedy hoofer Josh Barkley and Rogers his wife Dinah. When Dinah leaves to become a great dramatic actress, Josh vies to win her back. The routines include Astaire's 'Shoes with Wings On' and a reprise from 'Shall We Dance' - 'They Can't Take That Away From Me' by George and Ira Gershwin.
