This very average film is not one of Fred's musical triumphs, but is watchable.

Audience Reviews for The Belle of New York

The Belle of New York, starring Fred Astaire and Vera Ellen is a very lovely MGM musical. The costumes, dance numbers are delightful. I very much like both Vera Ellen and Fred Astaire so it is nice to see they were teamed up...both are very gifted dancers. Check this classis musical out!
