Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this classic MGM musical pairs Jane Powell and Fred Astaire, whose dance on the ceiling is as impressive today as it was back in 1951. Family entertainment doesn't get any livelier. For grade-schoolers, the relatively wholesome love story is less likely to capture their attention than the colorful, energetic dance numbers. For older kids, watching might even spark an interest in the dramatic arts.
