Flying Down to Rio- Carioca (1933)

Flying Down to Rio is a 1933 RKO musical film noted for being the first screen pairing of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Astaire and Rogers were not the stars of the film, however, Dolores del Río and Gene Raymond were top-billed.

This clip from the film is notable for being Astaire and Rogers' first dance together; they dance with their foreheads touching.
