A 1948 musical film starring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. It features music by Irving Berlin. The film was originally to have starred Gene Kelly, but Kelly was injured just prior to production and Astaire, who had announced his retirement from film, was coaxed back to replace him. The film featured some of Astaire and Garland's best-known songs, including "Steppin' Out With My Baby" and "We're a Couple of Swells." One musical number, a seductive performance by Garland of "Mr. Monotony" wearing the top half of a tuxedo and nylon tights (a style of dress which would become something of a trademark in later years after she wore the same outfit in 1950's Summer Stock), was cut from the film as it was deemed too risque for a film supposedly set in 1912.
