Has anyone seen this 1941 Warners film starring Thomas Mitchell and Geraldine Fitzgerald? The plot sounds intriguing. I believe it was shown on TCM a few years ago.

The  film has some good reviews on IMDB.

In Cole  Porter’s ANYTHING GOES, the song ‘You’re The Top’ has the line,

“You’re the nimble tread of the feet of Fred Astaire….”
