2 Works in Carefree (1938)
I was inspired to write this one-shot after hearing Harry Connick Jr's romantic version of this Irving Berlin song, which was written for the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers movie musical "Carefree". The song is found on Harry's "Come By Me" CD.
"Carefree" is Fred and Ginger's eighth movie together. Tony Flagg (Fred) is a psychiatrist whose best friend Steve (Ralph Bellamy) insists that he psychoanalyze his reluctant fiancee Amanda Cooper (Ginger) to find out why she keeps putting off their wedding. Typically, Tony and Amanda fall for each other.
I thought I'd capitalize on the film's lampooning of psychiatry with a little pseudoscience of my own. Anyone who knows anything about old-fashioned medical science will recognize the "cure for hysteria." Tony's been invited to Amanda's country club for the weekend, where he "treats" her for hysteria during a private session.
