On Tuesday, Oct. 24, Warner Home Video will release "Astaire and Rogers Collection: Volume Two" on DVD, completing the collection of films that starred Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Last year's release of the first volume of the collection featured the critically acclaimed films "Top Hat" and "Swing Time", along with "Follow the Fleet", "Shall We Dance" and "The Barkleys of Broadway", the couple's final film together.
"Astaire and Rogers Collection: Volume Two" will include the films "Carefree", "Flying Down To Rio", "The Gay Divorcee", "Roberta" and "Story of Vernon and Irene Castle". All five films are new to DVD and have been newly remastered.
Also being offered for the first time is "Astaire and Rogers Ultimate Collector's Edition". The special edition DVD set features all 10 of the dance duo's films along with the documentary "Astaire and Rogers: Partners in Rhythm", a glorious salute that includes candid photos, behind-the-scene tidbits and sidelights about famed collaborators Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern and George Gershwin, among others.
"Astaire and Rogers Ultimate Collector's Edition" includes an exclusive 10-song soundtrack CD from the team's movies, a set of collectible behind-the-scenes photo cards, reproductions of the "Shall We Dance" and "Roberta" press books and a mail-in offer for four Astaire and Rogers movie posters. For consumers who already own "Astaire and Rogers Collection: Volume One", a special Ultimate Collector's Edition will be available which will contain empty sleeves to accommodate the five remastered and restored films released last year.
