Mamoulian's swan song is one of his -- and Astaire's -- best.

Audience Reviews for Silk Stockings


This is a musical version of Ninotchka, and with a better cast, I enjoyed it. It's a lot funnier than the first movie too.

Surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. A very sexy movie (and musical) for the mid '50s. Cyd Charisse was very beautiful, and it helped that the script was based on Ninotchka. Astaire is solid as usual, but it's Charisse who really shines in this.

Fun dance numbers with Astaire and Charisse. Somewhat of a soft core propaganda piece against the Soviet Union.
