Synopsis:
'Second Chorus', the 1941 Hollywood musical comedy film starring Astaire, Burgess Meredith, Paulette Goddard, Artie Shaw and Charles Butterworth, with music by Artie Shaw, Bernie Hanighen, Hal Borne and lyrics by Johnny Mercer, sees Danny O'Neill (Astaire) and Hank Taylor (Meredith) as rival trumpeters with college band the Perennials. Both men find themselves competing for the affections of Ellen Miller (Paulette Goddard) while trying to get the other one fired. The 1951 Hollywood musical comedy film 'Royal Wedding' was set in London in 1947 at the time of the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip.
