Description by

In their seventh movie, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers croon, swoon and sway to a glorious George and Ira Gershwin score. It's time to "Slap That Bass" when Fred taps to the mechanized rhythms of a luxury liner's Art Deco engine room. The two lace up roller skates and - in a sequence requiring 150 takes - spin through "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off." The title tune finale, the Oscar nominee "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "They All Laughed" and more great numbers spread the melodic wealth, as ballet star Petrov (Astaire) and musical revue sensation Linda (Rogers) decide to wed and publicly divorce to quash persistent rumors of a secret marriage. Once tied, however, perhaps they shouldn't call the whole thing off...

Product Description:

Astaire and Rogers engage in romantic antics aboard a luxury ocean liner while dancing their way through such Gershwin tunes as "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "They All Laughed," "They Can't Take that Away From Me" and many others. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("They Can't Take That Away From Me").

Description by Warner Home Video:

To keep musical-comedy star Linda Keene from retiring to marry, her manager Arthur Mille, suggests to the press that she's already married to Petrov, the ballet dancer. The two ultimately decide to marry so that they can have very public divorce and clear the air, but true love blossoms between them.

Plot Synopsis:

The seventh feature starring the magical and incomparable dance team of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Famous ballet star Petroff -- otherwise known as Pete Peters from Philadelphia, PA -- would rather tapdance than do grands jetes. And he knows the partner he'd like, too: the lovely nightclub hoofer Linda Keene. But she dashes all hopes of a pas de deux by informing him that she's about to get married and retire from the stage.
Then, suddenly, rumors of a romance between the two get splashed on the cover of every newspaper tabloid... and everyone's plans are about to change.
