This film, containing the first of many Fred Astaire - Ginger Rogers partnerships, concerns a troupe of entertainers stranded in Rio. Songs include "The Carioca," "Orchids in the Moonlight," and the title song. Notable for a brilliantly photographed finale with chorus girls on the wings of flying airplanes, the movie was the musical that broke with the rather contrived Busby Berkeley production and moved toward a closer integration of musical and narrative elements. Astaire's dance numbers come not as interruptions but as extensions of the plot

When a friendly, successful suburban teacher and father is prescribed cortisone for a painful, possibly fatal affliction, he grows dangerously addicted to the experimental drug, resulting in his transformation into a psychotic and ultimately violent household despot. "This Eisenhower-era throat-grabber, shot in expressive CinemaScope, is an excoriating take on the nuclear family. That it came in the day of Father Knows Best makes it all the more shocking -- and wildly entertaining."--Jacket

Cruel fellowship by Cyril Hume( Book )

7 editions published in 1925 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It gives in deftly oblique manner, through the lips of an onlooker, the life story of a human failure. Claude Fisher, the subject of the book, was one of those unfor- tunate men of potentially fine fibre who become coarsened and at last vile through some mysterious inability to adapt themselves to others and to life. His psychology and his actions are most lucidly revealed by the author in a story which is uncomfortably real and searching."--The Spectator
