There is an audible change in the quality of the soundtrack in Judy Garland's "You Made Me Love You" number when she goes from the spoken interlude to the reprise of the melody.

Us that were born post-war tend to forget that some of our 50's heroes had prior talents, and that is just the case with Buddy Ebsen. He was so much a part of my childhood and since, yet hear he is hoofing it with Judy Garland back in 1938 - wow! This film is one of the all-time greats, so if you like a foot-tappin' memorable sequence - just watch Buddy and Judy. You will never forget it!
