Trivia

George Balanchine wanted to film a ballet of Gershwin's "An American in Paris" for this movie, He choreographed and rehearsed it for three weeks but was told by Goldwyn that "the miners in Harrisburg wouldn't understand it." The ballet was later used in An American in Paris (1951), choreographed by Gene Kelly. See more »

Quotes

Danny Beecher: You live near here?
Hazel Dawes: Just down the street.
Danny Beecher: Oh, that's too bad. I was hoping for a long walk. But maybe you'd like to go exploring? I heard there's an ocean near here and we could sit on the beach and get sunburned.
Hazel Dawes: Tonight?
Danny Beecher: I'm sorry. With you, it seems like the sun *is* shining.

Gershwin, Vera Zorina... what's not to like about this film?
8 August 2003 | by (Norfolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

A sweet romance, good character actors, vivid Technicolor, a little behind-the-scenes work at a major studio, and great songs make this a pleasant way to spend two hours. It's also interesting historically because it marks the transition between the end (for only a few decades, thankfully) of tap and the beginning of ballet in film musicals.
