  • Synopsis

  • Soundtrack

Perhaps the Gershwin's greatest film effort, featuring the unparalleled team of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in if not their most perfect dance sequences, some of their most memorable! Ballet star Pete "Petrov" Peters (Astaire, naturally!) arranges to cross the Atlantic aboard the same ship as the dancer he's fallen for but barely knows, musical star Linda Keene (Rogers). By the time the ocean liner reaches New York, a little white lie and their obvious growing affection for each other has churned through the New York rumor mill and turned into a hot gossip item: that the two celebrities are secretly married! Keene's beau back home is none too happy, and the star-crossed stars make a valiant effort to distance themselves from each other only to be thrown together by Petrov's scheming publicity agents. Memorable numbers include "Slap That Bass", "Walking the Dog", "They All Laughed", "You Say Potato", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me".
