USA 1953
Dir Vincente Minnelli
With Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse, Oscar Levant, Nanette Fabray, Jack Buchanan
Certificate U

Former Hollywood song-and-dance man Tony Hunter (Astaire) struggles to make his comeback, this time on Broadway. Complications arise in the form of a pretentious director-producer (Buchanan) and clashes with his co-star, prima ballerina Gabrielle Gerard (Charisse). Will the stars overcome their creative differences to produce a musical hit, or will the joke be on them?

David Somerset
