Description

First UK DVD release of this 1937 musical comedy from RKO Pictures. Nice work if you can get it! Fred Astaire glides through this effervescent comedy of confused courtship, written by master humorist PG Wodehouse. Fred stars as Jerry Halliday, an American in England who's lured to Tottleigh castle by a love letter from lovely Lady Alyce Marshmorton (Joan Fontaine). But it wasn't actually Lady Alyce who wrote the letter and what's more she's set her heart on someone else! Determined to win her hand, Jerry goes a-wooing if only his helpful staff didn't keep making his life so difficult. Featuring some of George Gershwin's finest songs (I Can't Be Bothered Now, Things are Looking Up), A Damsel In Distress is one of Fred Astaire's funniest and very best loved films. Oscar winner in 1938 and Oscar nominated. Extras include: Photo Gallery Review Astaire without Rogers but the style is the same * --Halliwells Film Guide
