About the Event:

For ADSNY’s final film in the Lights, Camera, Deco! Series, we will see the film that featured the first on-screen pairing of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

In this 1933 musical romance, choreographer and musician Fred Ayers (Fred Astaire) helps his friend and band leader Roger Bond (Gene Raymond) romance the gorgeous Brazilian Belinha De Rezende (Dolores del Río). Along the way, Ayers and singer Honey Hale (Ginger Rogers) stage marvelous dance numbers and conspire to make sure the show goes on, including a breathtaking dance number on the exterior of a formation of airplanes flying overhead.

The pre- and post-film talks will be led by Patricia Dillon, president of Putnam Art Advisors & Consultants, Inc., a multi-faceted art advisory firm assisting in the purchase, sale, and appraisal of fine and decorative arts. Patricia has had a lifelong interest in American painting and material culture and has studied at New York University, Columbia University, Parsons School of Design, Cooper-Hewitt, and Sotheby’s.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Applied Liberal Arts at the NYU School of Professional Studies, which offers courses in Arts, Design, Foreign LanguagesHumanities, and Writing and Communications.
