Description by OLDIES.com:
Fred Astaire gracing an imaginative, surreal 16-minute ballet with his wit and unerring dance mastery; a jazzy, glorious-in-Technicolor street carnival pulsing with movement and music; director Vincente Minnelli's lush, savvy sophistication evident in every scene - these elements highlight Yolanda and the Thief, a ravishingly beautiful fantasy about a con artist (Astaire) in a mythical Latin American country who convinces a naive heiress (Lucille Bremer) that he's her guardian angel. It's a perfect plot to fleece the winsome mark, until love gets other ideas. Ahead of its time in tone and visual style and largely underappreciated at its release, this musical is a real find for fans of bold, inventive filmmaking.
In this musical fantasy, Astaire is a slippery con-man out to swindle heiress Yolanda by posing as her guardian angel, but finds himself falling in love with her. Songs include "Coffee Time" and "Will You Marry Me'"
After the death of her parents, heiress Yolanda was sent to live in the isolated, protective world of a Latin American convent. Now that she's come of age, the young woman ventures out on her own, her innocent and trusting nature making her an easy target for a pair of greedy con men.
