The Gay Divorcee (RKO-Radio, 1934)

A tale of romance, divorce, and more romance that we would need a road map to explain.  However, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and the always enjoyable Edward Everett Horton create a clear path for fun… with plenty of singing and dancing thrown in. Black and White, 107 minutes. Plus a selected short subject.
