Carefree (1938) -- (Movie Clip) Change Partners
Neat dance gimmick, after the vocal in the Irving Berlin original song, as psychologist Tony (Fred Astaire) needs to snap Amanda (Ginger Rogers) out of her hypnotic state, before she marries the other guy, in their first “comeback” RKO musical, Carefree, 1938. >

Carefree (1938) -- (Movie Clip) Since They Turned Loch Lomond Into Swing
Probably should be no surprise that Fred Astaire, playing shrink Tony Flagg, has a terrific golf swing, until interrupted by Ginger Rogers as potential patient Amanda, which occasions Fred’s remarkable solo golf-tap piece to an Irving Berlin original instrumental, early in Carefree, 1938. >
