Description
In "Three Little Words" (1950), Fred Astaire and Red Skelton take on the roles of Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby, the unforgettable songsmiths of stage and screen who penned "Hooray for Captain Spaulding," made famous by Groucho Marx, "Who's Sorry Now," and "Boop-Boop-a-Doop," as well as dozens of other lovable tunes. This delightfully frothy biopic features Fred Astaire's light feet and Vera-Ellen's trademark twirls, as well as appearances by Gloria DeHaven, Arlene Dahle and a young Debbie Reynolds. It's a Hollywood party like no other!

    I'm a big fan of Fred Astaire films; this one is a perfect addition to my collection. Not as much dancing as I'd like, but otherwise an entertaining film.

        This is a gift for my sister-in-law who is the head of the dance department at a local college.
        She has wanted this movie ever since she first saw it on TCM!

          Classic songs, Red Skelton, Fred Astaire and Vera Ellen dancing and Arlene Dahl singing, what more can you ask? The story is lovely and a wonderful biography of two amazing song writers. I've watched it a dozen times and will watch it many more!

            Comments about this product:

            Great for Red's fans. . . I mean "Skelton." Not so great for Fred's altho he does some nifty dancing here. The love story seems to be OK but not "unusual" in any way. Touching scenes when Vera and Fred conspire to get Red out of one bad "love nest" into a better one. Liked the whole movie but some songs much better than "odders".

                  Comments about this product:

                  The plotline is a little difficult to follow, due to the way it was written and directed. The picture and sound quality are good, and the dancing and musical performances are also good. With Vera Ellen and Fred Astaire, or course they are! If you play movies in the background while you are doing other things, Three Little Words would be good to add to your collection.
