In this lavish musical, Broadway star Don Hewes' (Fred Astaire) dancing partner (Ann Miller) goes solo, and Don declares that he can make a hit performer out of the next dancer he sees.
This turns out to be the inexperienced Hannah (Judy Garland), who bristles as Don tries to remake her as his old partner. Then Don realises he might be falling in love with Hannah, and knows he must let her grow into her own kind of dancer if he wants her to reach her full potential.
'A fantastic movie, featuring two of the finest motion picture performers ever, Astaire and Judy Garlandm in their only cinematic pairing. Anne Miller also stars in there, too, to spice things up even more.' - Variety
'The slight plot is laced with generous dollops of vintage Irving Berlin songs, several of them staged with dazzling ingenuity.' - BBC.com
