THE GAY DIVORCEE, 1934, Warner Bros. 107 min. Dir. Mark Sandrich. After falling in love at first sight, Fred Astaire pursues Ginger Rogers all over England while she tries to finalize her divorce; an elegant upper-class milieu where matters of the heart are the only concern. <p> TOP HAT, 1935, Warner Bros. 107 min. Dir. Mark Sandrich. Astaire and Rogers achieve sheer cinematic perfection as a pair of strangers who meet in a London hotel and are nearly broken apart by confusion over mistaken identities. Supported by an infectious Irving Berlin score, the greatest couple in the history of Hollywood musicals dance their way through a smart and hilarious American masterpiece that's got as many quotable lines as it does catchy songs. Witty, stylish, and paced like a rocket, this may be the duo's finest film. </p>
