Well if you know anything about Fred Astaire movies, you already know that his films are never very long on plot. HOWEVER, the music and especially his dancing make up for a thin plot. This one is no exception. The plot of the movie is pretty unimaginative. But, the dancing is about as good as it gets!!! Be sure not to miss the final dance number, with Mr. Astaire and Ms. Powell dancing to "Begin the Begine". I would call it the quintessential dance routine of American film. It is a stark study in black and white. A black background, with twinkling stars, a shiny polished black floor, and the two dancing geniuses all in white. This is a MUST SEE for anyone who loves dance.
