Movie Info

Aging New York radio star and former dance sensation Jed Potter (Fred Astaire) tells his life story on the air. It comes dramatized through a series of vignettes that recount a decades-long love triangle that started between a much younger Potter, his one-time Army buddy and show-business rival, Johnny Adams (Bing Crosby) and a spitfire showgirl and nightclub singer, Mary O'Hara (Joan Caulfield). Throughout, musical numbers featuring the songs of Irving Berlin punctuate the drama.

  • Nov 25, 2011
    Bing and Fred are well matched in this ultra colorful musical that for something so bright and supposedly cheery touches on some very dark themes, divorce, alcoholism etc., although rather glancingly. Still Fred has some great dancing performances, the one where he is performing with a chorus line make up completely of mirror images of himself is particularly impressive. His voice and Bing's meld together very well and since the music is by Irving Berlin it makes for a very enjoyable experience indeed.

    Crosby plays against his typical roles, and shows he can play more serious roles as well as the silly romantic types he's done previously. The movie also has Astaire who may or may not be the better choice for the woman in the movie. A very interesting story.
