The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Astaire is as light on his feet and with his banter in this film as Ali would be years later. Fierce and funny, this film is a knockout. I tuned in expecting to see a B-grade Astaire film as many reviews note, but found it to be an underappreciated gem. As far as disposable comedies go, this film is leagues ahead of what passes for said genre today. Effervescent and hip, the film never strikes a false note, the jazz is hot, and while the songs may not be familiar standards, they mesh well with the plot and have a comic touch that is absent in a lot of musicals. There is never a dull moment, and Burgess Meredith, as second banana, is a delight. It is thoroughly enjoyable.
