Broadway Melody of 1940DVD - 1989
A backstage yarn about two hoofers, Johnny Brett (Astaire) and King Shaw (Murphy), who are an ambitious dance team working in a dance hall for little or nothing. A mistake in names shoots King instead of Johnny into the lead of a Broadway musical opposite the star, Clare Bennett (Eleanor Powell). On opening night of the production, King is unable to perform due to intoxication, and Johnny is forced to perform to save his partner's reputation. The show's producers realize their mistake in identity and all is resolved.
