The movie deals with the song writing duo of Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby who produced many songs from the late 1910 to 1920's. Fred Astaire and Red Skelton play the song writing team and the co-stars are Vera-Ellen and Arlene Dahl who play their respective spouses. Many well choreographed dance scenes in this movie with Vera-Ellen showing how athletic and graceful she is. Astaire is in his usual fine form in this movie. Red Skelton does not get to perform his usual pratfall comedic routines in this movie, but he still has his moments. Arlene Dahl has her usual glamorous aura. You also get to see a very young Debbie Reynolds acting in this movie (although her singing was dubbed). Some of the music is not too familiar with the current music trends of present, but the "Who's Sorry Now" song should be familiar to many. It is sung by Gloria DeHaven who played her mother in the movie (her mother was also in the musical field). Outside of the song writing aspect of the movie, both men yearn to other dreams besides song writing. Astaire wants to be a magician while Red wants to be a baseball player. In the end, they realize that song writing is something that they were probably better in. The movie has a hidden message that you need to have a backup plan in life. When your first aspirations don't pan out, you need to have something to fall back on in life. For the two men, it was songwriting.
