The real Irene Castle was on the production team for this movie. She was considered to be very difficult to work with and was extremely hard to please. According to Ginger Rogers, who plays Irene in the film, she hated every costume that she wore. And when Rogers refused to cut her own hair to create the bob hairstyle that Irene had created, she became even more difficult. See more »
When first in Paris, the band plays Darktown Strutters Ball. This song was written in 1917, certainly ahead of the date of this part of the film as the Castles were on their honeymoon. See more »
This movie is great! Not only do Rogers and Astaire display their fabulous dancing skills, but I think their acting is great too! I love to look at Ginger's dresses...especially Irene's trademark fox pieces when they do the 'Fox Trot'. The ending always moves me to tears; it's wonderful. If you haven't seen "The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle", and are a Rogers and Astaire fan, you need to. This is my favorite movie featuring the dynamic duo. It gets a 10 out of 10!!
