  • Well the Technicolor was good anyway.

    This is an example of Hollywood out of ideas and resorting to a less than noteworthy remake of a good film. No wonder I've never seen this before in my life. Astaire is good but deserves better than this pathetic attempt at a remake. Even Peter Lorre couldn't make this turkey fly.If you've a hankering for this story, go to the original, it really is worthy of the film it consumed. You can't go wrong with Garbo.

    It's a sweet story, of oppressed people finally getting to enjoy life. The music is surprisingly catchy! Though there are some troubles with the storytelling. Some of the plot was a bit hard to follow and was explained by dialogue, when tight editing might have been more effective. Also, they make it clear why the Communist system is wrong, it's oppressive to its people. But it's unclear as to why Capitalism is so much better, as it comes across quite materialistic and frivilous, lol. To be fair, they do point out the values of free speech at one point. It would have been nice if that was focused on more. Still, this was supposed to be a comedy and not a commentary!All in all, not the deepest story in the world, but still very charming.

  • Some Great "unknown" Cole Porter songs

    I've always loved the songs in this movie. For some reason they're not as well known as other Cole Porter tunes. "Sterophonic Sound" is a clever and funny look at movie biz technology. "Ritz Roll and Rock is an ahead-of-its-time take on the rock music biz & celebrities."Chemical Reaction" is a literate, original view of Love / Lust.Fred Astaire, as always is great, and the plot is also clever, especially for the time it was made (Capitalism over Communism)

    it was an ok film, but not one of either the leads best. i think it could have been directed better in many ways. i think the woman lead was very mis-directed in many was.....the film wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.
