Royal Wedding (1951) - Fred Astaire and Jane Powell

Fred Astaire dances on the ceiling, dances in a gym, in a storm (with Jane Powell) on board a ship and puts on a show-stopping Brooklyn based song and dance, in this musical comedy. There are five 'best bit' clips, and the whole movie, which is based around events in London in the build up to the real Royal Wedding between Princess Elizabeth (to become Queen Elizabeth II) and Philip Mountbatten, Prince Philip.
