In 1949, it had been ten years since Fred and Ginger had starred in a film together.
Barkleys was to be their final appearance as a team, and their first and only film together in Technicolor.

 They play a husband and wife dancing team who are split up by her desire to go into more serious acting roles.  (Notice any resemblance to the real team of Astaire & Rogers?)   The old magic is still there, but it is nostalgic, one last encore for filmdom's greatest dance team.
