The Gay Divorcee

Time Out says

Having insured Fred's legs for the equivalent of £200,000, RKO producer Pandro S Berman launched the Astaire-Rogers musicals with this extensive revamp of Cole Porter's famous stage show. Only the classic 'Night and Day' was retained in the score, with an archetypal dance duet set to it; new songs included 'Let's K-nock K-neez' for the divine Horton and a starlet called Betty Grable. A big, brash production number, 'The Continental', tries to cap the similar item from Flying Down to Rio ('The Carioca').
