A musical remake of Ninotchka: After three bumbling Soviet agents fail in their mission to retrieve a straying Soviet composer from Paris, the beautiful, ultra-serious Ninotchka is sent to ... See full summary »
Tony Hunter, a famous singer/dancer movie star, is feeling washed up and old hat (old top hat, tie and tails to be exact). The reporters are out for Ava Gardner, not him. But his old friends Lily and Les Martin have an idea for a funny little Broadway show and he agrees to do it. But things begin to get out of hand, when bigshot "artistic" director/producer/star Jeffrey Cordova joins the production, proclaims it's a modernistic Faust and insists on hiring a prima ballerina, Gabrielle Gerard, to star opposite Tony, and it's hate at first sight. And her jealous choreographer isn't helping to ease the tension. The show is doomed by pretentiousness. But romance, a "let's put on a show" epiphany, and a triumphant opening are waiting in the wings. After all, this is a musical comedy!Written by
During the shoeshine/arcade number, the same extras keep showing up in the background even though they are supposedly walking through. Some of them go by six times. See more »
When Tony Hunter sings the song "A Shine On Your Shoes" the shadow of the camera/cameraman is clearly visible on the "electricity machine". See more »
Tony, nobody admires you more than I. I've seen every show and every move you've ever done. But, let's face brutal facts, times have changed, Tony, and you haven't changed with them. You've gone stale!

This made me a fan of Cyd
I love this movie. Fred and Cyd made such a team. Especially in Dancing in the Dark * have u seen the saturday night live spinoff* and girl hunt. I enjoyed the whole movie. Never a dull moment. The whole cast was excellent. It is one of my favorite MGM Musicals. I like Shine on My Shoes. You can tell that was directed by Minnelli. If you don't have anythin' to do some night, rent this!!!
