    Two real-life events were incorporated into the plot of the 1951 MGM musical Royal Wedding. One, the marriage of Fred Astaire's sister Adele to a British nobleman had occurred years earlier; the other, the wedding of England's Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip was only four years in the past. MGM would probably have gotten Royal Wedding out closer to the Elizabeth-Philip nuptials, but the picture had leading-lady problems; every girl who was cast either became pregnant, ill, or otherwise unavailable. Finally, Jane Powell ... Show more

Astaire classic numbers

by Janine T on Jul 31, 2010

Astaire dancing on the ceiling, Astaire dancing with a coat rack. The movie is worth watching for these numbers alone. Added to that is a solid cast with Jane Powell, a rare actress who sings and dances incredibly well and can act and play comedy. (One of my favorite comedy dance numbers of all times is the Powell/Astaire no-good two-timing liar number!) Peter Lawford as her love interest definitely lights up the screen with his sheer attractiveness and Sarah Churchill is very well cast as the British stiff upper lip yet just-right partner for Astaire. The backdrop for this movie is the wedding of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip (although they are never named in the film), there is authentic footage of the wedding parade. If you're a fan of royalty, this certainly gives an added appeal to the film.
