A musical comedy full of high style, romance, mistaken identity... and Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing and singing 11 of Irving Berlin's best songs.
When Jerry Travers meets lovely Dale Tremont, it's love at first sight for him. Unfortunately, Dale's affections chill when she mistakenly believes he's her best friend's new husband. Now she's engaged to someone else...
Will she find out Jerry's real identity before she goes ahead and makes a big mistake?
One of the best musicals by the Astaire-Rogers team. Features top tunes by Irving Berlin including "Cheek to Cheek," "Top Hat" and others. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Picture.
The Turner videocassette is part of the "RKO Collection."
The story was loosely based on "The Girl Who Dared (or A Scandal in Budapest)", a 1911 play by Alexander Farag= and Aladar Laszlo; because so little of the original remained in the final script, the playwrights did not receive screen credit. Karl Noti is credited with the original adaptation.
