(1951) Genial musical in which a brother-sister song-and-dance duo (Fred Astaire and Jane Powell) take their show to London on the eve of Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding, then get caught up in the spirit of the occasion and find mates of their own in a dancer (Sarah Churchill) and an aristocrat (Peter Lawford). Directed by Stanley Donen, the lightweight plot is helped by some pleasant songs and agreeable dance numbers, but what’s most memorable is the eye-popping sequence in which Astaire dances on the walls and ceiling of his hotel room. Romantic complications.  (A-II -- adults and adolescents) TCM (cable)
