DAILY DOSE OF DELIGHT #4 (FROM TOP HAT) in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS Posted June 7, 2018 There's a moment in the dance, halfway through, where Ginger starts calling the steps and Fred follows. This is the first time I've noticed and it charmed the heck out of me. Moreso than any other clip this week, these two felt like equals, as Dr. Ament mentioned. They are geninely engaged in play and nothing about this scene feels romantic or sexual - just fun. I think I'm with the consensus where - in this clip at least- I don't see a battle but the end of one. the scene earlier in the film- at the weird dance studio/ bull fighting ring- feels a little more combative; then the 'never gonna dance' waltz is tragic, but here everything just feels kind of 'right' and magical.
