Stars Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers perform the classic dance routines “Isn’t This a Lovely Day?” and “Cheek to Cheek.” Astaire disliked the gown Rogers wore in “Cheek to Cheek” that was made mostly of ostrich feathers, complaining that it detracted from the dancing’s clean lines. Lucille Ball has a small uncredited role.
