KQED 9: Sat, Jan 9, 2010 -- 9:56 PM

Tom and Ellen Bowen, a brother and sister dance team (Fred Astaire and Jane Powell), travel to London to perform at the same time Queen Elizabeth II is getting married. Aboard ship, Ellen meets the dashing Lord John Brindale (Peter Lawford), causing her to miss rehearsal. Tom uses the delay to partner with a hat rack and other equipment. Arriving in London, Tom holds auditions, and meets the lovely Anne Ashmond (Sarah Churchill). The love affairs of both siblings lead to indecision and angst, which Tom works out by dancing on the walls and ceiling. The story was loosely based on the real life partnership of Fred Astaire and his sister Adele, including their ship voyage to London in 1923. Burton Lane's and Alan Jay Lerner's song, "Too Late Now," was nominated for an Oscar (losing out to "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening" by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer).
