The film was the fourth and final film in MGM's "Broadway Melody" series, and is the only on-screen pairing of Astaire and Powell, who were thought to be the finest movie musical dancers of their time.
The story begins when, Johnny Brett and King Shaw, work as a dance team in a dance hall. Because of a mistaken identity, Shaw gets offered the job to be Clare's dancing partner in a new Broadway show, when it was really Johnny's dancing that caught producer Bob Casey eye. The partnership breaks up, but Johnny stays to help out Shaw.
