The original story is credited to Moss Hart... but it was all about the production numbers and the spotlight dances by Powell.
Despite Robert Taylor's stiff, non-singing tunr, this is the second and best of the four Broadway Melody MGM made, largely due to Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown's songs and Eleanor Powell's dazzling dancing.
Tuneful, danceful, full of laughs too--fun MGM series entry.
Enjoyable star musical.
