Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse headline this musical comedy about a Hollywood star who returns to the Broadway theater when no producer wants him for a movie. Egos clash between the movie star, his lithe ballerina co-star and their effete director--and the show bombs in out-of-town tryouts. But the initial failure convinces the stars to work together, re-creating the musical to entertain their audience rather than satisfy their own artistic desires ... and they produce a Broadway hit.
