Summary
  • Follow the fleet: A Navy sailor tries to rekindle a romance with the woman he loves while on shore leave in San Francisco
  • Follow the fleet: Astaire plays a hoofer-turned-sailor. Rogers is his ex-partner, now convoying the Navy around for 10 cents a dance. One day the fleet returns to home port and the partnership is renewed--at least for one more show
  • Fred and Ginger dance up a storm as they dramatize the careers of the early-1900's renowned ballroom dancers, Vernon and Irene Castle
  • Roberta: Fred and Ginger sing I Won't Dance, but their feet prove otherwise in a tale of Parisian high fashion and hijinks

  • Flying down to Rio -- Roberta -- Follow the fleet -- The story of Vernon and Irene Castle
  • Flying down to Rio special features: Vintage comedy short, "Beer and pretzels", with Ted Healy and his Stooges; classic cartoon: "I like mountain music"; Theatrical trailer
  • Flying down to Rio: From a play by Anne Caldwell; based on an original story by Lou Brock. Originally produced as a motion picture in 1933
  • Flying down to Rio: This film, containing the first of many Fred Astaire - Ginger Rogers partnerships, concerns a band in Rio. Songs include "The Carioca," "Orchids in the Moonlight," and the title song. Pilot and band leader Gene Raymond woos Dolores Del Rio, and then learns that she is engaged to a friend of his, after he flys her home to Rio. Fred & Ginger provide the musical moments. Notable for a brilliantly photographed finale with chorus girls on the wings of flying airplanes, the movie was the musical that broke with the rather contrived Busby Berkeley production and moved toward a closer integration of musical and narrative elements. Astaire's dance numbers come not as interruptions but as extensions of the plot
