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. With the great Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (marks the sixth screen teaming of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and I think their best collaboration together). Great music and dance scenes as always.
“Listen. No one could teach you to dance in a million years. Take my advice and save your money!”
Lucky is tricked into missing his wedding to Margaret by the other members of Pop’s magic and dance act, and has to make $25000 to be allowed to marry her. He and Pop go to New York where they run into Penny, a dancing instructor. She and Lucky form a successful dance partnership, but romance is blighted (till the end of the film at least!) by his old attachment to Margaret and hers for Ricardo, the band leader who won’t play for them to dance together.
