Flying down to Rio by Thornton Freeland( visu )
9 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 472 libraries worldwide
This film, containing the first of many Fred Astaire - Ginger Rogers partnerships, concerns a band in Rio. Songs include "The Carioca," "Orchids in the Moonlight," and the title song. Pilot and band leader Gene Raymond woos Dolores Del Rio, and then learns that she is engaged to a friend of his, after he flys her home to Rio. Fred & Ginger provide the musical moments. 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

The lost patrol by John Ford( visu )

During World War I a desert patrol loses its leader and is both literally and metaphysically lost, as an unseen (and unreal) Arab enemy picks off the men one by one.
