“ I was lucky enough to find this on YT at one point (since taken down). My first silent film, I was stunned by the emotion and warmth portrayed just through facial expressions and little gestures. I'd definitely recommend this as an introduction to Silent film - it's adorably sweet, but mostly without the melodrama of some other Silents.

“ After watching all the Fred & Ginger movies above, I started looking up Ginger's other films, which range from the silly but sweet (like this one and "Rafter Romance" below) to touching stories dealing with deeper issues, such as "I'll Be Seeing You" and "Bachelor Mother". Ginger was certainly far more than "Fred's partner". I don't know how to describe "It Had To Be You" - the plot would look ridiculous written down, but somehow I find myself watching it often and loving the humour, the very palpable chemistry between Ginger & Cornel, and even the crazy concept.. ” - I_Won-t_Dance

“ I know Norman Foster's voice and acting talents are not to everybody's liking, but I just adored him and Ginger in this boy-meets-girl tale based in the big city. Plus it's a charming peek into urban life, work and flirting in the Thirties! I've been looking for any similar work by Mr Foster for a while, but haven't come across anything yet. Funnily enough, I discovered recently that the film which got me started watching B&W Cinema was directed by none other than Norman Foster (see #1!) ” - I_Won-t_Dance
