The title to this film was used for the ill-fated WWII Air Force B-24D bomber the "Lady Be Good", which disappeared over the Libyan desert on April 5, 1943 after overflying their air base in a sandstorm. The wreckage of the crash was found 15 years later in 1958 at which point it was discovered that the crew had parachuted out of the plane and had attempted to walk across the desert to safety. The remains of Lady Be Good's crew were found two years later in 1960. See more »

Eleanor Powell must be the greatest female dancer of all time. The camera movement and stage settings are unbelievable. TCM movies own some wonderful gems and Turner is a genius.
The quality of the print seems perfect. I saw only the ending and per the other comment I was blessed with a great trigger. The dance was long and interesting from the beginning. When EP started it was very subtle but nonetheless fascinating. Little clicks and hand motions lead me to believe she was just window candy but she progressed into an amazing routine with such complexity that you forget how intricate it was by virtue of the simple start. A camera change revels a new perspective that plays perfectly into the remaining steps. It's ends beautifully.
