This is an okay movie until Fred Astaire puts on blackface. Too bad for Oscar highlight reels that this is the most imaginative dance in the film. Too bad for everyone.
There are really only about four dances and three songs in this movie, so it’s pretty thin as a musical. Fred and Ginger do have nice chemistry, though. So I guess watch it if that’s what you want — and if you can overlook some egregious blackface.
