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".
