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 »

The upper-class Stephen Arden (Ralph Bellamy) brings his fiancée, the radio singer Amanda Cooper (Ginger Rogers), to be consulted by his friend, the psychoanalyst Dr. Tony Flagg (Fred Astaire), to improve their relationship. Amanda listens to the record made by Dr. Flagg about her and has an initial friction with the shrink. But sooner she falls in love with him and discloses her feelings to Dr. Flagg. He decides to hypnotize Amanda to loath him and love Stephen. However his subconscious makes him perceive that he also loves Amanda. But Stephen obtains a restrain order against his friend and he can not get close to Amanda to withdrawal his former hypnotic suggestion.
"Carefree" is a delightfully naive and adorable classic, with a silly story but wonderful dance numbers of the constant pair Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Ginger "steals" the film not only dancing, but also with a funny performance. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Dance Comigo" ("Dance with Me")
