REVIEWS

"A fantastic movie, featuring two of the finest motion picture performers ever, Astaire and Judy Garland, in their only cinematic pairing"
– The Hollywood Reporter

"The title song finale, evoking Fifth Avenue on Easter Sunday back in the days when the carriage-trade throughfare was still lined with millionaires' mansions is the perfect note on which to end one of the happiest of Arthur Freed's MGM musicals."
– BBC

“To see it now is to marvel at their talents, and that of Irving Berlin.” 
– David Shipman
