Pick Yourself Up (4:47)

Cover of Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers At RKO

From Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers At RKO and 3 other releases

From the film ‘Swing Time
…Lucky (Fred Astaire) meets Penny (Ginger Rogers), a dance school instructor, when he asks for change for a quarter. It’s his lucky quarter and Pop feels bad that Lucky lost it. They attempt to get it back, but Penny is in no mood to deal with them. When she drops her things, Pop sneaks the quarter out of her purse, and she thinks Lucky did it.

They follow Penny to her work. In order to apologize, he needs to take a lesson from her. She’s still furious at him. After a disastrous lesson, Penny tells him to “save his money” since he will never learn to dance. Her boss, Mr. Gordon (Eric Blore), overhears her comment and fires her. Lucky dances with Penny to “prove” how much she’s taught him. Not only does he give Penny her job back, Mr. Gordon sets up an audition with the owner of a local venue.
