THE BELLE OF NEW YORK (1952) (DVD)

This product is manufactured on demand using Region-Free DVD-R recordable media.

The incomparable Fred Astaire teams with lithesome and beguiling Vera-Ellen in this lavish turn-of-the-century musical delight. Cast as a free-spirited playboy, Astaire narrowly escapes marriage to a showbiz siren before chancing upon a delectable Bowery mission worker (Vera-Ellen). This time, buoyed by the wings of true love, he finds himself literally dancing on air -- up, up and away above the city rooftops and onto the Washington Square Arch! To prove his worth to this skeptical Daughter of the Right (Its the uptrodden who need saving these days, he tells her), Astaire goes to work, first as a streetcar conductor, then as a song-and-dance waiter at a fancy restaurant. While trying to resolve their differences, the stars perform dazzling dance routines to Johnny Mercer and Harry Warrens warmly nostalgic score. Among the highlights are a spectacular sequence inspired by colorful Currier and Ives artwork, Vera-Ellens steamy Naughty but Nice and Astaires knockout I Wanna Be a Dancin Man.
