Carefree is slick '30s screwball comedy and a very enjoyable one. Fred plays
a suave psychoanalyst
to whom Ralph Bellamy brings his reluctant fiancee (Ginger)
-- under the assumption that she must have deeply hidden problems if she
doesn't want to marry him.
This time it is Fred who is pursued by Ginger
-- she has no problem at all recognizing that he's the guy for her, not Ralph. Ginger
has some very funny running-amuck scenes while still under Dr. Fred's hypnosis. The
hypnosis is also brought into the stunning "Change Partners" (pictured here),
where Astaire truly is mesmerizing.
