Bolero, the 1934 Wesley Ruggles romantic dancing musical ("His dancing partners were but stepping-stones to fame!"; "Based on an Original Story by Ruth Ridenour"; a wild story of a conceited male dancer who stops at nothing to become famous, firing a string of female partners along the way, but then he meets beautiful Lombard, who quits him, and he is devastated, but he opens his own nightclub, and convinces her to dance the Bolero with him, even though she has since married a British nobleman, but she doesn't know that he now has a heart condition, and doctors have told him that if he ever dances again, he will die, but he dances with her anyway, and makes it through the dance, but then dies in his dressing room!) starring George Raft, Carole Lombard, William Frawley, Sally Rand ("The Fan Dancer", who re-creates her famous fan dance in this movie!), Frances Drake, and Ray Milland. Note that it seems that Paramount wanted George Raft and Carole Lombard to be a dance team like Astaire and Rogers at RKO, and this picture WAS a big hit, and there was another dance movie with the same stars called "Rhumba", but there were no others, probably because both stars were too busy making movies of other types.
