Fred Astaire partners a 17-year-old Joan Leslie in the WWII film. The Sky's the Limit is a charming, enjoyable wartime picture from his post Ginger Rogers period. Astaire plays a decorated fighter pilot who's taking some incognito R & R, but his laissez-faire guise ends up infuriating the young lady he's attracted to (Joan Leslie, a year removed from playing James Cagney's wife in Yankee Doodle Dandy). Leslie was perhaps Astaire's most appealing partner after Ginger Rogers. Astaire and Leslie strike sparks in their various dance routines which will surprise and delight Astaire fans. The choreography is done by Astaire himself and demonstrates a progressive streak that predates and prophesises the Modern Jazz dance of the 1950's a la Marge and Gower Champion, in which the dancing is darker and more internal. This is a special film that encompasses the talent of this great showman and demonstrates Astaires contribution to the dance of cinema.
