This review is from: Roberta [DVD]  (DVD)
This film should be regarded not for its overall quality as a film musical, but as an essential part of the collection of any Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers lover. (It was made before the studio fully realised that they would be a much bigger attraction than Irene Dunne.) It contains two of their best ever dances: their first 'fun' dance, which is recorded live and in a single take, and a sublime slow romantic dance to 'Smoke gets in your eyes'. There is also an amazing virtuoso solo tap dance from Fred. It is well worth enduring the mediocre plot-line for these items alone. Jerome Kern's music is also a bonus.
