I recently watched Swing Time (which is coming up on the list) which is basically the same movie as this so I am having trouble keeping them apart in my mind. I do know that I absolutely love Astaire and Rogers. They have great chemistry and are both phenomenal dancers.
Of course, this cooky film is based entirely off misunderstandings and mistaken identities. The movie Swing Time is vastly superior by comparison. Standing alone, though, this movie is entertaining and fun. The sets, however, are bit ridiculous. I have never been to Venice but I am sure as hell that it does not look like that. Still amazing though; these guys are competing for affections with Powell and Loy.
I am so sleepy!!!
Helped save RKO from bankruptcy.
4th of ten dancing partnerships between Rogers and Astaire.
