Thornton Freeland in Flying Down to Rio

Flying Down to Rio

1933 NR

In this high-flying musical comedy, a love triangle unfolds around a sensuous Brazilian beauty (Dolores del Rio), an ace bandleader (Gene Raymond) and his friend (Raul Roulien). But romantic intrigue aside, it's Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers who steal the show in their first on-screen pairing. Produced by Merian C. Cooper, the film features aerial stunts and some elaborate in-flight choreography, as well as the Oscar-nominated song "Carioca."
