The film contains Ann Miller's best remembered musical number from the MGM era, "I've Gotta Hear That Beat." The brainchild of master showman Busby Berkeley, the highly inventive sequence placed Miller amidst a sea of disembodied musical instruments that appear to be playing themselves through cut-outs in the floor. While the number has long been considered a feast for the eyes, few are aware that Berkeley complemented the visual experience in audio terms, too, as every time Miller passes a new section of the orchestra, that particular instrument takes the lead on the soundtrack.

I think this musical is highly underrated. Yes the plot is not particularly original, but how many are original. The plot and acting are not a strong point, but it's a musical. To me this is better than half the Astaire Rogers musicals which I do love. The singing by Nat King Cole and Jane Powell are superb. Plus there are so many wonderful character actors in this like SZ Sakal, Billie Burke and Chill Wills. Their comedy is really great. The dances are by Busby Berkeley and music by Andre Previn. How can you ask for more? It should be remastered and get higher reviews by the critics. I was overwhelmed by the Take me to Broadway number by Bobby Van. This is the best Ann Miller I have seen. She did at least two fabulous tap dancing numbers including a splashy flamenco dance near the end.
