Vivid Technicolor, startling camerawork, swellegant fashions, and that's about it. One great song ("That Old Feeling") and a couple of beguiling specialty acts, but they're nobodies and totally unrelated to the rest of the action, so how much can you care? The story is trite and feeble even by the meager standards of 1930s musicals, and star power is lacking.
