The dance sequenceEdit

Astaire plays a con artist hoping to steal some jewelry. He dances with a larger lady but soon he eyes the beautiful Lucille Bremer and cuts in to dance with her. They proceed to dance out in the terrace where they dance around steps and moving walkways. It ends with the end of the ball and Astaire stealing Lucille's bracelet while kissing her. She then proceeds to give him her necklace. They separate and Astaire ponders if he'd allowed his chance for real love get away. He looks back and she runs into his arms.

This was the second of four features for Fred Astaire in the movie Ziegfeld Follies.
