CGiii Comment

Littered with camp characters and innuendo.

The story is exactly the same as everything that Fred and Ginge ever did - were audiences so dumb in those days?

The noise - oops the music - is an abomination - with the exception of the one famous song.

After a while it just becomes so suicidally irritating that many deaths will occur by the predictable - they get it together - end.

Dumb as it gets.

The(ir) Blurb...

Ballet star Pete "Petrov" Peters arranges to cross the Atlantic aboard the same ship as the dancer he's fallen for but barely knows, musical star Linda Keene. By the time the ocean liner reaches New York, a little white lie has churned through the rumor mill and turned into a hot gossip item: that the two celebrities are secretly married.
