Bob Gordon is staging a new Broadway Show, but he is short of money. He gets an offer of money by the young widow Lilian, if she can dance in his new show. Bert Keeler, a paper man, gets this information and is writing about this in his column in an slight unfriendly way.

Excellent Powell vehicle. Buddy Ebsen shines here and provides great comic relief in the film. Great dance numbers and songs. Just another in a long line of great MGM musicals. Powell was just so good...
Fascinating mix of newspaper genre and lavish musical, with some smashing art deco sets (and sadly, some comedy skits that needed to be left on the editing room floor). Eleanor Powell's tap number in the finale is a technical marvel...especially when she walks right up and almost kisses the camera lens!
