Audience Reviews for Let's Dance


Silly bit of nonsense put over by the talented team of Fred Astaire and Betty Hutton. Their styles aren't seamlessly matched as was the case with Astaire and Ginger Rogers but they are still a breezy pair. The film is also helped by having a strong supporting cast with pros Lucile Watson, Ruth Warrick and Roland Young adding nice touches throughout.
