Fred and Ginger again, Face the Music and Dance

"Face the Music and Dance" from Follow the Fleet (1936), music by Irving Berlin, gowns by Bernard Newman.

I love this pantomime/dance, and you have to watch through to the end for the Art Deco pose Fred and Ginger strike. The tall platinum blond in lamé is the young Lucille Ball.

I wish we had something as spectacular to see us through the current depression.
