Monday Music Break: Flying Down to Rio

Okay, I'll admit it up front: I'm a sucker for 1930s musicals. When you combine that with my love for Brazil and its music and the dancing of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, you get the following:

That's the "money shot" sequence from the 1933 RKO musical, Flying Down to Rio. Watch the whole thing and you'll see some pre-Hayes Office flying nipples for your own titillation.

I just fucking LOVE this movie. You can rent it from Netflix or buy it from Amazon.

This movie is also significant for the first-time-ever appearance of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. As a wise man guy once said, "Ginger Rogers did all the same moves as Fred Astaire, but she did them backwards and in heels"...
