An Astaire-Rogers vehicle saved by supporting players Eric Blore and Edward Everett Horton.
It's about innuendo and devious plots (though, of course, the stories are always essentially backdrops to showcasing the Astaire-and-Rogers show), and while it has plenty of amusing moments and some good musical numbers, it feels stiff at times,
Made at the height of popularity of Astaire and Rogers, this elegant musical boasts glorious score from the Gershwins, including the songThey Can't Take That away From Me, which was nominated for an Oscar.
When viewed today it fares much better critically as a stylish and sophisticated musical comedy from the Art Deco era.
...the plot is what makes this Astaire/Rogers pairing frustrating, the dances slightly undercut by that.
Not their best, but still a treat.
One of the best Astaire-Rogers musicals with great music and dance.
It was a great move to have Astaire be a ballet instructor in the script, because his style is so ballet it's ridiculous. Their duets are so, so magical I never want the film to end. And they work together incredibly well, too - the dog walking scene is just adorable.
Some of the greatest plot twists of the day; the hairbrained comedy and always great sidekick Edward Everett Horton brought down the house. Including the music of the always idolized Gershwins and a number on rollerskates that was to die for, this is by far one of the better Rogers/Astaire teamings.
This movie is funny and has a good number of stars. I don't really care for all the dance numbers, but if you like Fred and Ginger you will like this movie.
A very nice Musical.
