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. --Questo testo si riferisce a un'edizione fuori stampa o non disponibile di questo titolo.

Along the way he meets the fabulous Joan Leslie and, well, falls in love for real.
The movie showcases their love from the awkward "meet cute" (Roger Ebert) to the powerful and quite delicious, mysterious, and surprising ending that is the ending to end all Astaire films.
The music is sublime, led by Johnny Mercer (lyrics) and Harold Arlen (music). The dance sequences are thrilling, tied to the plot in ways that many musical numbers in other musical films are not.
The grim overcast of the war is everywhere and the lovers live under the threat of death and lonliness.
What a movie!
This was the last of the youthful Leslie's great pairings.
She began being the child bride of Gary Cooper in "Sgt. York. Then she was Bogey's first love interest in "High Sierra." She gloriously played Cagney's wife in "Yankee Doodle Dandy" (Finally aged eighteen!) and ended her awesome streak playing Fred's lover (at 19-20!) in "The Sky's The Limit."
After that she made some uninteresting films, got married and moved on with her life.
Such is Hollywood!
At any rate the knockout songs include "Shining Hour," "I Got A Lot In Common," and the astounding "One For My Baby" where the master does the greatest solo dance ever recorded on the screen.
"The Sky's The Limit" is one of those masterpieces that, like "Chimes At Midnight," and "Ride the High Country," get passed over by the masses. But do not be fooled: this is great Astaire. One of his very best. Its romance is real and powerful and its ending is all the way mysterious and epic.
This is the darkest Astaire and one of his very best, if not the best.
"The Sky's The Limit" is towering.
The film centers on Astaire, a Flying Tigers pilot home on leave from China before the US entry into WW II, posing as a diletante and Leslie (working for an aircraft manufacturer) trying to "rehabilitate" this intriguing man she just met, all while they are romancing and falling in love. It's a fun B&W movie getting America ready for war and another Astaire "everyman" role with lots of story telling through song and dance. The movie provided a nostalgic trip down memory lane and is highly recommended!
She is a photographer talking photos of famous people, but wishes to travel. The Mystery is solved as she finds the Flying Tigers
with a promise to return. Not too much danceing in this film like other Fred Astaire films but still enjoyable
