Description by OLDIES.com:
Bert Kalmar (Fred Astaire) always wanted to be a magician, but all it takes is a disastrous opening night to make his dream go poof! So Kalmar movies on...and finds songwriting magic with collaborator Harry Ruby (Red Skelton). The stage-and-screen songsmiths whose many tunes include Groucho Marx's signature "Hooray for Captain Spaulding" receive a Hollywood hooray in this cheerful screen bio featuring a hit parade of Kalmar and Ruby standards (including the title tune and "Who's Sorry Now"). Astaire puts on his dancing shoes for duets with Vera-Ellen and a tap solo. And Debbie Reynolds, in an early screen appearance, portrays Boop-Boop-a-Doop sensation Helen Kane. You'll be Boop-Boop-a-Delighted.
This musical drama is the biography of the songwriting team of Kalmar and Ruby and their climb to success. Songs include: "I Wanna Be Loved By You" and "Who's Sorry Now'" Academy Award Nominations: Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.
