The years when Cole Porter , George Gershwin , Richard Rodgers and Irving Berlin were top of the pops produced some of the best musical films ever made. A season of the 1930s' and 40s' vintage begins with some sparkling music by Cole Porter orchestrating the back-stage story of a dance team struggling for success. With the flashing feet of Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell beginning the beguine, a happy ending seems a safe bet.
Music and lyrics by COLE PORTER Directed by NORMAN TAUROG
