Follow the Fleet features Fred as a gum-chewing  sailor and Ginger as a dance-hall girl, but  somehow still retains its chic aura.
It does echo Roberta  with its  dual-romance -- even to having the  same male lead, Randolph Scott -- with  Fred and Ginger trying to be match-makers,  this time between Scott and Harriet Hilliard.

OK, so it's a dull plot.

But who cares,  when we have Fred and Ginger's sparring,  the fast-stepping "Let Yourself Go",  the slapstick routine to "I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket"  and the beautiful "Let's Face the Music and Dance".
hear Fred sing "Let's Face the Music and Dance"
