Movie Info

This lesser Astaire/Rogers vehicle is one of several screen versions of the venerable Hubert Osborne stage play Shore Leave. For reasons unknown, Fred and Ginger are virtually supporting players here, spending most of their time trying to patch up the romance between Fred's fellow sailor Randolph Scott and Ginger's sister Harriet Hilliard (better known as Harriet Nelson, of Ozzie and Harriet fame). One of the sillier aspects of the plot hinges on raising enough money to renovate a broken-down

Though not one of Astaire-Rogers strongest musicals, the musical is still enjoyable despite its rather bland plot.

It was fun to see western star Randolph Scott garbed in a sailor's uniform and acting like an old salt.

Burdened with a dull plot but blessed with a rousing Irving Berlin score.

Not Fred and Ginger's best, but great Irving Berlin songs and dances

Audience Reviews for Follow the Fleet

A cute and honest musical with some great turns by newcomers at the time Betty Grable, Harriet Hilliard, and Randolph Scott. A stale plot and only slightly entertaining music, but all the hilarity and charm that the grand old duo bring to the silver screen. Another nice classic.

In 1936, they must have thought longer was better. I tried to watch this because it is rated pretty well, but it drags.
