meanwhile: i have some tap shoes to dust down... true story #littleknowncolinfacts
The Song was also used for the remake in 1952 in "Lovely to Look at" sung by Kathryn Grayson and in the dance number danced by Gower & Marge Champion.
Also great in this movie: Victor Varconi as Prince Ladislaw.
Uncredited as Fashion Model you can see Lucille Ball!!!!!
Overall it isn't the best musical of its kind, by comparision I don't think it really comes close to some of the others. But if you take it as a film in itself it is enjoyable, and some of the dresses are beautiful - 1930s Paris designs are so elegant!
all that songs,
There's Fred Astaire in here, too, so I guess we can call this another "Astaire- Rogers film." If so, I think it's one of their best and certainly one of their most underrated. You don't hear much about this movie, and that's unfair.
Rogers and Astaire both have some funny lines in this film and I wish Ginger's role had been bigger. She and Astaire do a couple of tap dance numbers that are excellent - some of their best work together. Dunne's first two songs aren't bad but you have the rest. Her soprano voice almost broke my eardrums, especially with "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes."
Randolph Scott, Helen Westley and Claire Dodd also star in this dated-but-generally fun movie.
Ginger Rogers en contesse polonaises, une maison de couture parisienne, la belle voix d'Irene Dunne, le faux air rustre de Randolph Scott... tout est bien dans ce film malgré quelques longueurs pour les tours de chants d'Irene Dunne.
Les chansons restent dans le tete des jours entiers et les numeros de danse sont un vrai bonheur, dont le dernier: "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes " l'un des meilleurs pas de deux du duo Astaire/Rogers.
Bref, à voir, à voir, et à revoir...
