Plot? What plot? Who needs a plot when you've got gorgeous gowns, impeccable tuxedoes, Fred and Ginger's dancing, remarkably stylish sets, and music to set your heart a flutter?
frustrating plot? it's an early screwball comedy. and when you go into a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers film, it's more about their dancing anyway. anything more than that is a bonus
