FRED ASTAIRE MOVIE MARATHON
December 25, 2013  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

It’s the last Wednesday of the month, which means TCM’s last day-long salute to its star of the month, Fred Astaire. And tonight’s all-night lineup begins with one of his best and most representative efforts: 1935’s glamorous musical comedy Top Hat, co-starring Ginger Rogers. Just for fun, watch for the flower shop girl – she’s played by a young actress named Lucille Ball. Other Astaire movies shown tonight include 1936’s Swing Time at 10 p.m. ET, 1937’s Shall We Dance at midnight ET, 1938’s Carefree at 2 a.m. ET and 1949’s Barkleys of Broadway at 3:30 a.m. ET – all of which co-star Ginger Rogers.
