So you think Fred and Ginger are good, eh? ... WELL, YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET! ... You haven't seen dancing until you see the greatest dancers in the world in the greatest picture they've ever made! ... Never before such romantic flair, such abandoned fun, such excitement and interest and delightful plot in an Astaire-Rogers offering! ... Never before such richness of production! ...

In the golf sequence one of the 5 golf balls thrown on the solid base has rolled off onto the grass. After Fred has hit the first four balls, the camera cuts to a new angle and the last ball has moved from the grass to the solid base. See more »

During opening credits, a pair of hands writes the names, pauses, wipes them out, and writes the next set of names several times. See more »
Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers star in this delightful romantic musical comedy with a twist on the usual Fred and Ginger plot. Though odd and short in the musical number department, this teasing romantic romp features some of their best dancing and good humor to boot. Ginger Rogers is nothing short of stunning in this picture and Mr. Astaire's feet never touch the ground. Definitely their most underrated film.
