Movie Info

Josh (Fred Astaire) and Dinah Barkley (Ginger Rogers) are a famous musical theater duo, but an argument on the opening night of their newest Broadway show reveals previously unspoken resentments. Dinah feels overshadowed by Josh, so when flirtatious playwright Jacques Pierre Barredout (Jacques François) suggests she play the lead in his new drama about Sarah Bernhardt, she separates from Josh and endeavors to become a serious actress. Can producer Ezra Miller (Oscar Levant) reunite the duo?

Audience Reviews for The Barkleys of Broadway

  • Jan 04, 2011
    The tenth and final in a long Rogers and Astaire saga, the Barkleys emphasize all the real life struggles of the pair: Rogers trying her hand at being a serious actress, the pair's unprecedented hospitality in their real life partnership, and the follies of show business. Including one of Rogers most dramatic and sensational turns, and a shoe stepping routine unheard of in musical theater, the Barkleys took Broadway and the film industry by storm.

    A decade after their ninth and final film together, Rogers and Astaire were paired together again, thanks to a twist of fate. Although Judy Garland was originally cast to star opposite Fred Astaire, she became ill, and Ginger Rogers was tapped to replace her. <p> And as an added bonus: Geez that Oscar Levant is a monster talent. The man appointed by George Gershwin to interpret his music, Levant proves again his musical and his acting ability. <p> For historical purposes, if for nothing else, this Rogers and Astaire tenth and final project together must be seen.
