How could they miss with stars like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers singings such songs as Pick Yourself Up, The Way You Look Tonight and my favorite, A Fine Romance. Astaire does a solo dance with him dancing to his shadow, which will be in the history books of Broadway Musicals. A really good time with a wonderful couple in Astaire and Rodgers. It just doesn't get any better than these two in a movie musical.

the famous pair's silken dance numbers show up too little and too late in the film to save an otherwise uninspired script, Ginger Rogers remains throughout nevertheless always a perfect vision, while the others pale as props only and, worse, caricatures around her, even the cardboard Astaire

My absolute favorite Astaire and Rogers movie! A performer and gambler travels to New York City to raise the $25,000 he needs to marry his fiancée, only to become entangled with a beautiful aspiring dancer. One of the most beautifully shot scenes about romance in the snow has the wonderful song called "This is a fine romance."
