The Gay Divorcee (1934)

“Chance is the fool's name for fate.”

Synopsis: A series of miscommunications and coincidences leads Mimi Glossop to believe that the co-respondent her divorce lawyer hired is none other than Guy Holden, a man who has been pining for her since they first met.

Fun, enigmatic, bold. This film really was so great to watch. As a fan of the dynamic duo since watching them in Top Hat (1935), it is always exciting to see Rogers and Astaire paired together. The fabulous costume design accentuated every step, jump and dip, and there was the most astounding chorus number at the end. Sublime.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆ 4/5 stars
