Description: Fred Astaire, Eleanor Powell, cool ice cream tap.
This is one of those movies where you just fall into a reverie. Two
consummate professionals obviously doing what they love to do. Rap tap, tap.
Like so many of the musicals of the period, the plot is thin on the ground.
But when they start to dance that just doesn't matter. And when they Begin the
Beguine, it's like starlight. The black floor reflecting gleams of light and
Fred and Eleanor, both in white, shining against the darkness. Seeming to fly in
space. Cool and smiling and tapping.
A light hearted relaxation of a movie.
