Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell in in their absolute best
The only movie that starred Eleanor Powell and Fred Astaire, with both at their absolute best. The lines, the ryhythm, the syncopation, the extremely complex dance routines - in complete accord with the phrases of the music and all its variations - and with their making it look all so easy - especially in the Begin the Beguine finale! you would be hard pressed to find either of them in a better performance.
And let's not forget the exceptional talents of George Murphy - he did an excellent job holding up to the talents of first Fred Astaire (their Broadway song in the nightclub) and then Eleanor Powell (in their waltz number).
My all-time favorite movie.
