  • Enjoyable romp

    Really a fun picture, and enjoyable to see Fred and Ginger not in formal clothes, for once, but they still wow with their dancing and chemistry. Also fun to see Harriet Hilliard (Nelson) as the mousy sister who becomes a knockout. Her rendition of "Get Thee Behind Me, Satan" is great! Other good songs, too, in this joyous RKO musical.

  • See it for Fred, not the story

    I've seen all of Fred Astaire's movies and sad to say, this is probably the weakest one. The plot is beyond silly, even for a musical. But it's worth seeing anyway, just to see Fred dance. His performance is brilliant, as usual.

  • Fun,Fun,Fun!

    I always enjoy seeing the astounding couple in a different scenario. It's also fun seeing Lucille Ball as a blond and Betty Grable before she became a star. The musical scenes in this movie are exceptional and fun to watch! Not as dazzling as Top Hat or Swing Time but it's a good movie just the same.

    Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers never made anything but great films together. Although this is not one of their best, it is an excellent musical. There are a few outstanding musical numbers, good support from Randolph Scott. Two notable appearances, Betty Grable and Lucille Ball make memorable early screen performances. Ball is particularly good, and a blonde as well. The "Let's Face the Music and Dance" is one of the musical duo's best numbers ever. Harriet Hilliard, better know as Harriet Nelson of "Ozzie and Harriet" plays Ginger Roger's sister. The basic plot is pretty familiar, but with a cast this exceptional, it works. Excellent art direction and score.

    If it wasn't for the greatness that is ginger and fred this movie would have not followed the fleet, it would have Fell in a CREEK!! the main leads were boring and didn't have much chemistry, Irenne Dunne should have been the lead with Ruldolph they had more chemistry in the previous film. I loved the moments with fred and ginger though they have a nice chemistry.

  • A Masterpiece Nonetheless

    Being a bit provocative again....I disagree with the professional critics who claim that the "double couple" plot in this film is flawed because the lead couple of Randolph Scott and Harriet Hilliard are "boring"...or some such notions of the kind. I don't think they are boring. I think it's very interesting to have a traditional couple and a "with it" couple together in the same plot. They work off each other beautifully. Sandrich knew what he was doing with this plot. I think it's a sign of the times for modern critics to see such a device as wrong and flawed. I'm not bored by it...and I think that the film is quite enjoyable with the contrast...including Hilliard's traditional singing style. In a era a tiny-voiced female divas, I find Harriett's vibrato voice quite refreshing and pleasing. Also refreshing...as always... are Astaire and Rogers...their singing dancing never fail to astound me with its abundance of elegance, beauty, polish, drama, and boldness. This movie is no exception to their high standard. I....just one opinion...rate it close to "Swing Time" and "Top Hat" in the rarefied lexicon of their masterpieces.
