'Top Hat'

One of two masterpieces of the whole Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers (both pictured) series; the other is "Swing Time." The songs, which include the classically staged "Cheek to Cheek," are by Irving Berlin. Mark Sandrich directs, and in support are series regulars Helen Broderick (the salty sidekick), Edward Everett Horton and Eric Blore (the fey fussbudgets) and Erik Rhodes ("For the woman, the kiss! For the man, the sword!") (AMC early Saturday at 4:45 a.m.).
