Flying Down to Rio is a 1933 romantic-comedy musical directed by Thornton Freeland. The film is the first movie to showcase the famous duo of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Although they played a smaller role in this film, the chemistry between the two shines through. In the film, Roger Bond (Gene Raymond) is a handsome bandleader who seems to always get the band fired from their gig because he cannot stop flirting with the ladies. While flirting as usual, he meets the beautiful Belinha de Rezende (Dolores de Rio) but this time he falls in love for real. The problem is that Belinha is already engaged to someone else. Roger, who is also an experienced aviator, is set to fly down to Rio to play at the Hotel Atlantico and persuades Belinha to accompany him on the trip. During the flight, mechanical failure forces Roger to land the plane on an isolated island. Spending the night on the island alone brings the two of them closer, but now the only problem is that Belinha is still engaged. She must now choose between the two men.moreless
