One would think given the collective talent, this would be one of the best Astaire-Rogers vehicles. Unfortunately, it is a bit run of the mill. Not inspired like Swing Time or Top Hat. Dunne provides great supporting work and has a chance to show off her pipes also. Scott seems a bit out of place...def can see why he found a home in westerns. 3.5 stars though, as its got some good moments.
Solid musical, my first Astaire/Rogers film and it was a delight. The interesting thing is their storyline takes a backseat in the second half of the film to be the Dunn/Scott storyline which I thought was interesting. Great music numbers especially the dance number "I'll Be Hard to Handle" expertly directed by Seiter with stellar camera work by Edward Cronjager. Lucille Ball appears uncredited. Good times!
