Movie Reviews

Great to have Astaire on DVD, but the print quality is low
Booked4Life | middle america | 01/23/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Here are three Fred Astaire movies: Second Chorus, Royal Wedding, and The Over the Hill Gang Rides Again. The first movie, Second Chorus is a light, frivolous movie, with less of Astaire's dancing than is typical in his outings with Ginger Rogers. It's fun to see, but the print is fairly muddy, and sometimes it's hard to see detail. Royal Wedding is cute, and features some of Astaire's classic dance scenes--the hatrack dance and the dance on the ceiling number. The Over the Hill Gang Rides Again is a made-for-television movie featuring a number of familiar old faces from Westerns. It's an ok movie, and it's fun to see Astaire in the "fish out of water" kind of a movie. It's Fred Astaire's only Western, and although he plays a Texas Ranger, he's the most dandified Texas Ranger you'll ever see. Overall, the DVD compilation is fun, and the price is certainly low enough to overcome the print quality objection."
