George Stevens’ direction and the photography by David Abel emphasized the shimmering contrasts often seen in the Astaire-Rogers films. The glittering whites and the deep blacks are constantly showing up in the sets, costumes and design. It is no mistake that snow is repeated several times as a romantic motif, and mirrored on the major club set as twinkling stars. [x]
