The seventh feature starring the magical and incomparable dance team of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Famous ballet star Petroff -- otherwise known as Pete Peters from Philadelphia, PA -- would rather tapdance than do grands jetes. And he knows the partner he'd like, too: the lovely nightclub hoofer Linda Keene. But she dashes all hopes of a pas de deux by informing him that she's about to get married and retire from the stage.
Then, suddenly, rumors of a romance between the two get splashed on the cover of every newspaper tabloid... and everyone's plans are about to change.
Astaire and Rogers engage in romantic antics aboard a luxury ocean liner while dancing their way through such Gershwin tunes as "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "They All Laughed," "They Can't Take that Away From Me" and many others. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("They Can't Take That Away From Me").
The Turner videocassette is part of the "RKO Collection."
VHS version, Catalogue #6394 contains the original theatrical trailer, and is hosted by Robert Osborne.
