Carefree (released in other English-speaking countries as "Amanda"), the 1938 Mark Sandrich singing-and-dancing romantic musical comedy ("Let the rhythm ring!... Fred and Ginger are back again"; "Fred and Ginger together again!"; "So you think Fred and Ginger are good, eh?... Well, you ain't seen nothin' yet!... You haven't seen dancing until you see the greatest dancers in the world in the greatest picture they ever made!... Never before such romantic flair, such abandoned fun, such excitement and interest and delightful plot in an Astaire-Rogers offering!... Never before such richness of production!... And the four Berlin songs are said to be the best he ever wrote!..."; "It's honey for the jitterbugs, it's fun for you and me. The Dance you sing and swing and slam- That rhythm dream. The Yam!"; "Here they come!... Dancing to your heart's content!... Dashing, bubbling, floating on a cloud of rhythm through a romance that will make you sigh as much as you laugh, and thrill as much as you tap your toes! Welcome, Fred and Ginger, in you biggest hit of all!"; "See them do 'The Yam'"; "Lyrics and Music by Irving Berlin"; "Story and Adaptation by Dudley Nichols and Hagar Wilde") starring Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Ralph Bellamy, Luella Gear, Jack Carson, Clarence Kolb, Franklin Pangborn, and Walter Kingsford. Note that this was one of the nine wonderful movies that Astaire and Rogers made between 1933 and 1939 (they made one final movie, "The Barkleys of Broadway", eleven years later in 1949).

Important Added Info: Note that this still is from a special set of "color glos" stills, which means it was printed on a photo type of paper and have a glossier front, with more vivid colors. This is something the studios experimented with in the late 1930s and early 1940s, for both 8x10 stills and 11x14 stills. Also note that this still measures 8" x 10 1/4" [20 x 26 cm].

Condition: very good. There are a few faint scuffs and a tiny tear in the right of the still, but it is otherwise in pretty nice condition.
