Trivia

Fred Astaire, then 47 years old, planned to retire as a leading man with this film. He was planning to only work with his dance studios and breed racehorses. Easter Parade (1948), having recently lost Gene Kelly to a broken ankle, brought Astaire out of retirement. He danced on film and on television until he was nearly 70. See more »

Ok Movie, One Great Scene
13 October 2001 | by (Harrisonburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

First off, this movie is not that great. Fred Astaire is the only standout, and the rest of the cast is just vanilla. However, one scene makes watching the entire film worth it. Anyone who does not know who Fred Astaire is should watch this movie for, most likely, his most famous dance scene. "Puttin on the Ritz" is performed spectacularly through amazing tapdancing and mirror effects and makes you wonder exactly how they did this scene. I suggest you watch, purely for this scene.
