Time Out says

Fred plays an ex-exponent of 'genteel dancing' who became a gob when Ginger wouldn't marry him. They meet up again at the Paradise Club and, in this revamp of Hit the Deck, put on a show and save a floundering romance between four-square Scott and awful-pain Hilliard. The numbers, being by Irving Berlin, are top-hole. 'I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket' gets a hilarious sparring dance routine, 'Let Yourself Go' is a marvellous piece of showing off, and 'Let's Face the Music and Dance' the most beautifully integrated of any of their evening dress jobs. Fred's piano-playing and typing turn out just like his dancing - no surprise: his hands always danced as much as his feet.
