A diverse abd pleasantly entertaining movie.
- Herb Stark
Crosby and Astaire excel in this light musical comedy. Their showmanship makes for an hour or so of prime entertainment. The title song and 'A Couple of Song and Dance Men' makes this worth your while. Now, when will TCM air this fine musical?
Superb "Heat Wave " Number
- Allen Moss
In some many reviews of this movie, NOTHING is mentioned about the superbly choreographed and danced "Heat Wave" number with Fred Astaire and Olga San Juan, the only pairing of the two, but exceptionally well done. The dancing is dynamic, the costumes and settings rich in technicolor and the music is pulsating. As for the rest of the movie, some musical highlights but some REAL lows, like Billy De Wolfe's comic sketch..awful!
Drags in places, shines in others
- Mr D
The high point is "Song & Dance Men," letting Bing Crosby & Fred Astaire do what they did best: sing and dance. But the general storyline is hard to swallow, and some of the scenes - I'm thinking of the whole Mrs Murgatroy scene - are excruciatingly tedious. But there's a lot of great Irving Berlin songs - In the army Mr Jones, Puttin on the ritz, Blue skies, White Christmas. (Two conspicuous by their absence are God Bless America and Alexander's ragtime band.) Joan Caulfield is adorable in her braids and radiant smile.
What a great Movie
I am not now nor have ever been a big fan of musicals. I caught this movie by chance. It may not be a great film for people that just like musicals. But it has such a great screenplay, that it carries the movie for someone like me. It made me look at the powerhouses and the unknown (at least to me) in a completely different light. It inspired a new appreciation for classic actors/ actresses.
Blue Skies music collection. 78's by Decca Records
I came across the original soundtrack from the movie, Blue Skies. They are the 78 records by Decca Records. Was wondering how much they would be worth to a collector.
Excellent Family Entertainment
- Joseph V Fisher
Beautiful scenery, color, costumes and music. Very good acting by all members of the cast. An excelent family movie which is hard to find these days.
Total waste of everyones talent and the viewers time! Fred's dancing is the only thing of value.
The Two Best, at Their Best!
- Fred Sevekow
Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire -- the two best, at their best! And the Irving Berlin score is icing on the cake.The added "spice" to this movie is the lovely Joan Caufield who, as it has been recently reported, was having a torrid affair with Bing when this movie was made. Watch how Bing, normally quite cool or formal with his leading ladies, looks at Caufield with his beautiful baby blue eyes. It's something special, as is this movie!
a true classic musical
bing crosby and fred astaire at their best. crosby especially, shows why he is in a class by himself. this would be the 2nd of 5 straight years as the no 1 box office attraction; besides having the most record sales and his radio show in the top 10 ratings. this is a movie for all to see and enjoy, and needs to be on tcm more often. thanks
