Audience Reviews for Daddy Long Legs

This is my first Fred Astaire Movie, I stayed away from him for many years pass as I thought it would be something that I would watch 5 minutes and tirn off, boy was I wrong. 20 Minutes into this movie I found a real talent that we will never see on the screen again in this lifetime. This man could play the drums, he could sing, and everyone knows he could dance. The film has been reviewed by a millin others my reveiw can be said in a couple of words. Worth Watching. 5 stars 2-18-13
