Trivia

  • Originally planned to star Fred Astaire and 'Garland, Judy' , but when Garland became ill, Ginger Rogers took over.
  • Astaire had sung "They Can't Take That Away from Me" to Rogers previously in _Shall We Dance? (1937)_ , but they had never danced to it. Rogers suggested that they use the song again (this time dancing), and so it was included.
  • There is music playing in the background when Fred Astaire's Josh Barkley tells Oscar Levant's Ezra Millar that Jacques Barredout is a bad director for Ginger Rogers's Dinah Barkley. The song is "This Heart of Mine," which Astaire performed with Lucille Bremer in Ziegfeld Follies (1946).
  • This was the last film to co-star Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers; also their first in ten years, since Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, The (1939); also their only film together in color.
  • The only film Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers made for MGM.
