Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers paired up for the first time in Flying Down to Rio, a 1933 pre-Code musical that promised viewers would always remember the Carioca, a Brazilian dance that was driving the world "melody mad." Still fondly recalled for the song of the same name, the picture stars Dolores del Río as a magnetic beauty and Gene Raymond as the bandleader who follows her from Miami to Rio de Janeiro. Drive down to LACMA for some movie magic and dance along.
