A Lovely Day for a Wedding

If you enjoy movie musicals with some of the best dancing you've ever seen, this is your lucky day! Fred Astaire is at his dancing best, and co-star Jane Powell is his equal in every way. Royal Wedding is a feast of music, dancing, romance and comedy that the whole family will enjoy. Fred Astaire dances two of his most memorable routines in this one story. First he dances with a coat rack as his partner, and later, in an unforgettable dance routine, he is in love and so happy that he dances on the walls and ceiling of his hotel room. The story takes place in the fall of 1947, and British Princess Elizabeth is going to marry Prince Phillip on November 20. Tom and Ellen Bowen (Fred Astaire and Jane Powell) are a brother and sister song and dance team that is booked to play in England during the same period as the upcoming Royal Wedding. In a movie gender type-cast reversal, Tom’s sister Ellen is a playgirl, changing boyfriends more often than her outfits, with even more beaus than her brother Tom. On the voyage across the ocean to England, playgirl sister Ellen meets and falls in love with aristocrat Lord John Brindale (played by Peter Lawford). In real life, Fred Astaire and his sister Adele Astaire were a song and dance team before Fred found the movies and was paired with Hollywood starlets. And in real life, just as in this movie story, Fred Astaire’s sister Adele married British Royalty - Lord Charles Arthur Francis Cavendish, the second son of the 9th Duke of Devonshire, living in a castle in Ireland. While Princess Elizabeth is preparing for her Royal Wedding with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the Yanks and Brits in this story are falling in love with each other. Love is in the air and all of us are invited to join in. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
