In her 1991 autobiography, "Ginger: My Story," Miss Rogers related that the entire film originally was planned for Technicolor. However, other sources, including Arlene Croce's "The Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers Book," a lauded study published in 1972, maintained that just one Irving Berlin song, "I Used to Be Color Blind," would have burst into Technicolor during the dance. Miss Croce explained that color tests were shot, but their quality was poor, so the scheme was dropped. See more »

Although Ginger Rogers is memorable in her role, this is a lukewarm romantic musical comedy which teams her again with Fred Astaire as patient and psychiatrist in another variation on the love triangle story. Rogers doesn't show any affection towards her fiancé (a one-note performance from Ralph Bellamy) so he asks Fred to hypnotise her and change her inclinations. Fred falls in love with her himself (naturally) and after that the story descends into a rather poor farce.
There are moments which are good the Change Partners' number, for one (although the Berlin score is pretty poor); the sequence with the golf balls but they are few and far between. The movie creaks badly in places and certainly shows its age.
