The iconic Jerome Kern hits keep-a-coming in this toe-tapper based on the Broadway show. Though not top-billed (that would be Irene Dunne, showing off her silvery soprano), Fred and Ginger get all the best moments, her cracking wise as a phony Russian countess, him playing it cool as a Hoosier band leader who finds himself improbably comanaging a chichi Parisian dress shop. In addition to the music—which includes songbook standards “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” “Yesterdays,” and “I Won’t Dance”—the highlight is Astaire and Rogers tapping out rat-a-tat-tat repartee with their feet in the wonderfully relaxed “I’ll Be Hard to Handle” routine.
