Review

Our Score
The first film was a hard act to follow, but director Gene Kelly's sequel is satisfying and includes a memorable sequence of new material featuring the ageing Kelly dancing again with the great Fred Astaire. There's also a witty Saul Bass title sequence: watch how the graphics mirror the artists' names. Although this MGM compilation is not as powerful as its unique predecessor, for those unfamiliar with the output of the greatest Hollywood studio of them all, it is mandatory viewing. For others, it's a chance to recapture the lovely golden glow that watching an MGM musical can bring.

Summary
