1 hr. 57 min.
When movie producer Steve Canfield (Fred Astaire) attempts to convince respected Russian music composer Peter Illyich Boroff (Wim Sonneveld) to score his next movie, his methods prove a little too effective. Accustomed to rigid communist ideals, Boroff is immediately charmed by the excess of Parisian nightlife and refuses to return to Russia. Unwilling to lose its national treasure, Moscow dispatches frigid bureaucrat Ninotchka Yoschenko (Cyd Charisse) to retrieve the wayward composer.
