Ginger and fred trailer 1986
Ginger and Fred (Italian: Ginger e Fred) is a 1986 comedy/drama film directed by Federico Fellini and starring Marcello Mastroianni and Giulietta Masina.
The title is a reference to the American dancing couple Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The two leads portray Italian impersonators of Astaire and Rogers who reunite after thirty years of retirement for a vulgar and bizarre television extravaganza.
The film was the subject of a trademark claim in the United States by Ginger Rogers, who claimed in Rogers v. Grimaldi that the film violated her Lanham Act trademark rights, right of publicity, and was a "false light" defamation. The Second Circuit rejected this claim, finding that "suppressing an artistically relevant though ambiguous[ly] title[d] film" on trademark grounds would "unduly restrict expression."

Amelia and Pippo were once together famous as dancers. Thirty years after they've retired they team up one more time for a TV show. Although this reunion is overshadowed by Pippo's lack of stamina their performance is well-received and revives their popularity for another day.
Ginger and Fred was nominated for Best Foreign Film of 1986 by the U.S. National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.
