“Top Hat” quotes(1935)
Plot – Famous dancer Jerry Travers and his manager Horace Hardwick are going to the Lido of Venice to join Horace's wife Madge and a young friend of hers, Dale Tramont. Before leaving London, however, they meet Dale without knowing who she really is and Jerry courts her. Once in Venice, a misunderstanding leads Dale to believe that Jerry is the husband of her friend and, outraged, she rejects him and quickly marries Alberto Beddini, an Italian tenor. Meanwhile, Madge punishes her husband, considering him guilty of harassing her friend. Other comical incidents follow and the final clarification arrives when we learn that Dale's marriage is invalid, because the "pastor" who celebrated the ceremony was none other than Horace's waiter. Dale and Jerry finally find love and can get married.
