Smoke Gets in Your Eyes; Roberta (1935) The “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” dance is performed near the end of Roberta, and it has come to personify all that Astaire and Rogers are remembered for today - elegant costumes, polished floors, and romantic chemistry. It was the first romantic dance Astaire choreographed completely by himself, to dance with Rogers. Their chemistry is apparent in this number. Near the beginning, Astaire looks as if he is about to place her hand on her shoulder, but he catches himself on time, knowing that it would spoil the effect of the dance. Instead, he balls his hand up into a fist and keeps dancing. It also features the first of Rogers’ famous supported backbends. After the backbend, she rests her head on his shoulder and he places his hand on her head. It finishes with the two of them walking out together, arms linked.
“There is a strange sort of reasoning in Hollywood that musicals are less worthy of Academy consideration than dramas. It’s a form of snobbism, the same sort that perpetuates the idea that drama is more deserving of Awards than comedy." -Gene Kelly
