One of Stanley Donen’s early solo efforts (without his Singin’ in the Rain partner, Gene Kelly), this 1952 musical doesn’t cohere quite as well as his best work. One moment, though, is enough to redeem it—this is the one in which Fred Astaire dances on the ceiling, an impeccably executed bit of movie magic and a sublime expression of Donen’s love for the medium. With Jane Powell and Sarah Churchill.
