Top Hat: Ginger Rogers’ Ostrich Feather Dress

10 August 2010 5:06 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

In 1935, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers made cinema history with their most successful film partnership, Top Hat. However, it wasn’t Astaire’s headgear that got people talking; it was Rogers’ ostrich feather dress worn in the Oscar-nominated song ‘Cheek to Cheek’.

The fact remains that this is quite possibly the most memorable, beautiful and romantic musical number ever captured on film, and Rogers’ dress contributes to this greatly.

Whenever Astaire and Rogers dance, they are making love without undressing, without even kissing in the majority of their films; “they is angels” remarks unfairly condemned criminal Kofi as he fulfils his dying wish of watching the lovers perform ‘Cheek to Cheek’ in the film The Green Mile (1999).

Ginger Rogers‘ last Star of the Month evening begins tonight at 5 p.m. Pacific Time on Turner Classic Movies. [Ginger Rogers Schedule] Among the Rogers classics on TCM’s schedule are two of the actress’ most important vehicles: Sam Wood’s romantic melodrama Kitty Foyle (1940, right), which earned Rogers a Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of a working-class young woman who falls for a high-society type (Dennis Morgan), and Billy Wilder’s The Major and the Minor (1942), considered by some to be Rogers’ best film.
