"We'll show them a thing or three," Honey Hale (Ginger Rogers) says - she and Fred Ayres (Fred -taire) take to the dance floor to do the carioca. - events turned out, -taire and Rogers showed us three times three more, making nine other films together after their breakthrough first screen teaming in Flying Down to Rio. "Too big for the Earth, so they staged it in the sky!" ads declared for this spirit-lifter with a swell Vincent Youmans score and built around a romantic triangle played by Dolores del Rio, Gene Raymond and Raul Roulien. It also includes a dandy production number in which chorines soar on airplane wings. Rogers and -taire are fourth- and fifth-billed, but their magic w- undeniable. When the film ends, the l-t image we see isn't the leads. It's Fred and Ginger.

A quintessential piece of Thirties musical kookiness right out of Man Ray

An OK musical that really sparkles when Fred and Ginger dance together for the first time.
