Astaire and Powell together is enough to make this worth seeing even if it was pure tripe. The cool storyline of mistaken identity and the excellent Frank Morgan cast as a bumbling producer makes this a real sleeper musical and possibly one of MGMs best B&W affairs. Great routines, and nice songs. One of those "they dont make em like they used to films". A real treat. 4.5 stars
