"Let Rhythm Ring ... Fred and Ginger Are Back Again! "

-- Synopsis: This is one of the funniest and wackiest Fred and Ginger film to date but lacks the musical charm that is their other films. Fred plays a psychiatrist, not a dancer or entertainer or singer and Ginger is the Star who plays plays a radio star named Amanda Cooper. Amanda is confused about marrying her fiancé Steve (Ralph Bellamy) and goes to see a psychiatrist Dr. Flagg (Astaire). After overhearing her psychoanalysis she becomes a difficult patient for Dr. Flagg. After a series of Prescribed events Amanda gets into a little uninhibited mischief. In the end she dumps her fiancé Steve for who else but Dr. Flagg. Nominated for 3 Oscars

* This film features only four musical numbers. Fred and Ginger made the " Carioca" and the " Continental"famous, now they introduce the " Yam." Fred has a solo at the Country Clubs Golf Course that uses Golf as a prop. During the song Change Partners Fred and Ginger do a hypnotic dance. In the dream scene they do a great dance to " I Used to be Color-Blind" with Ginger being lifted in the air quite frequently and some slow motion dancing.
