Plot Outline:

An actor feels washed-up but is convinced to return to the stage for a "funny" little show. But when "artistic" director Jeffrey Cordova is brought on, he changes to show beyond recognition, including hiring prima ballerina to star opposite of our hero - and the two couldn't be more unhappy about the situation. Everything seems to be doomed... unless they can pull out a last-minute production miracle. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

Although not as thematically satisfying as other musicals, such as Singin' in the Rain, The Band Wagon is a fun, music-packed, colorful throwback from Hollywood's golden days of musicals. Astaire and Charisse share great on-screen chemistry and the film boasts some fun numbers (particularly the stylized noir-inspired piece that closes the film.)
