When "Follow the Fleet" was released to commercial TV in the 1950s, because of its length, musical numbers, most frequently Harriet Nelson's two songs, were cut to make more room for commercials. This was a common fate that often befell musical productions deemed too long to fit pre-determined shorter time slots, the amount of mutilation depending on the local editors of the station scheduling it.

Although I enjoyed seeing Harriet Hilliard and Lucille Ball as other characters than Desi's "Lucy" and Ozzie's "Harriet", I would be happy to just watch the final dance number over and over and never see the rest of the movie--it's hauntingly beautiful and the most touching I've ever seen.
It's not just a dance number! With body language alone they act out a very emotional, but unspoken drama.
