A major musical from the 1950s and a great example of Comden and Green’s interest in the contrast between popular forms such as the musical theatre and the pretentiousness of dramatic theatre. Fred Astaire plays a musical star who has to reconnect with the uninhibited nature of song and dance. That’s Entertainment indeed!
Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
