Mahlon Hamilton made an uncredited appearance as a doorman. He had been making movies for years, way back in 1919 starring as Jarvis Pendelton in Daddy-Long-Legs (1919). Six years after this film Fred Astaire went on to play the same role. See more »

Another fluffy concoction from the Freed unit at MGM, this one most notable for the reteaming of Rogers and Astaire after a ten year break, with the usual mix of tunes and laughs. Full of the usual high jinks expected from the stars, the screenwriters and the creative team it's hard to resist...even if the polish can't completely cover all the cracks. When Fred and Ginger dance (again) to "They Can't Take That Away From Me" you just can't help but melt! Who could ask for anything more?
