    Plot? What plot? Who needs a plot when you've got gorgeous gowns, impeccable tuxedoes, Fred and Ginger's dancing, remarkably stylish sets, and music to set your heart a flutter? 7 years 7 months ago

    frustrating plot? it's an early screwball comedy. and when you go into a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers film, it's more about their dancing anyway. anything more than that is a bonus 7 years 3 months ago

    Hi, I’m 47 years old and just now catching up on TCM... my first Fred and Ginger movie was Swing Time, which I really enjoyed. But this one is just over the top and frustrating without being funny. If I’m going to watch a screwball comedy, it has to at least be funny. Although I never found Fred Astaire to have good comedic chops... or even acting ability, for that matter. Yup. I said it. I have one more Fred and Ginger flick to check off (Shall We Dance) and then I’m done. Btw, I adore Ginger Rogers, so I that helps. 1 month 2 weeks ago
