This film is basically the same as Top Hat only there were better songs and sets. Like any sane person, I love the song "Way You Look Tonight" and had actually watched the clip from this movie many times just to see different versions. The song "A Fine Romance" is also phenomenal.
The plot to this movie and the plot to Top Hat are completely blurred in my mind at this point. However, I think that this film is superior for the reasons mentioned above. These movies aren't deep or thoughtful, but they are fun!
I realize that the black face number is really racist. At this point in American history, you have to look at intentions and it certainly wasn't meant to be offensive.
Ranked #90 in AFI's top 100.
Barrack Obama made a reference to this movie in his inauguration speech.
Cutest montage ever:
