Movie Info

This film chronicles the friendship of songwriting duo Bert Kalmar (Fred Astaire) and Harry Ruby (Red Skelton). Bert is a vaudeville dancer who moonlights as a magician. His assistant, Harry, makes a disastrous mistake at a magic show, and their partnership ends. Later, when Bert hurts his leg and can no longer dance, he tries his hand at writing musical numbers. After hearing a friend play a catchy tune, Bert asks to meet the man who composed the song -- leading him right back to Harry.

    Routine musical, at least as routine as it can be with talents like Astaire and Vera-Ellen in it, they're well matched and when they dance the picture lives and it is beautifully shot but it just doesn't have that zip that the best MGM musicals do.
