It’s easy to imagine how Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers might have regarded Pants-Off Dance-Off and Dancing With the Stars. The tip-tapping dancers—whose ten films together are beautifully restored in Astaire & Rogers: Ultimate Collector’s Edition—were notorious snobs about the fanciful art they perfected and were proudly out of step with their times. They danced through the Depression in gowns, top hats, white tie, and tails. NR; $99.98.
