Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers star in Swing Time, the 1936 epitome of classic dance cinema. When John “Lucky” Garnett (Astaire) loses a bet and must raise $25,000 to marry his fiancée, he heads to New York City to make up the funds. He meets Penny Carroll (Rogers), a dance school instructor, and woos her with his charm and dance skill.
