Directed by Vincente Minnelli, starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse. An aging musical star hopes a Broadway show will restart his career. However, the play's director wants to make it a pretentious retelling of Faust, and brings in a prima ballerina who clashes with the star. Along with "Singin' in the Rain", it is regarded as one of the finest of the MGM musicals.
