    Description

    Swing Time (RKO, 1936). Pressbook (14.5" X 13.5", Multiple Pages).
    This sparkling RKO musical was the sixth film legendary dance team, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers would make together, many considering it to be the their very best. Directed by the great George Stevens, all of the elements in this film come together in spectacular fashion. There are six classic Jerome Kern tunes in the film, including the unforgettable "The Way You Look Tonight" (music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and sung by Astaire at the piano). Of the film's two nominations, the ballad won the film's sole Oscar - for Best Song, other memorable songs include "A Fine Romance," "Never Gonna Dance," and "Pick Yourself Up." As with most Astaire/Rogers films, the exquisitely choreographed dance numbers, lovely duets, and stunning Art Deco sets really make the movie. This fantastic pressbook, which includes the herald, has edge wear, the spine of the cover has some slight amount of splitting and has some cellophane tape repair, some slight surface paper loss, tears in the pocket that holds the promotional items, and one cut. A rare find for a fantastic film! Fine.
