The Gay Divorcee

1934 Rated NR 1hr 45m

Mimi Glossop (Ginger Rogers) is looking for a way out of her unhappy marriage, so her busybody aunt (Alice Brady) hires a professional correspondent to pose as her niece's lover. When Mimi meets American dancer Guy Holden (Fred Astaire), she thinks he's the faux beau, and she confuses his genuine interest for part of the act. Nominated for three Academy Awards, this early Astaire/Rogers pairing won the Best Song Oscar for "The Continental."
