As Amanda (Ginger Rogers) exits the taxi cab and starts to cross the street for the theatre, you can see the reflection of the roof line behind her in the large piece of plate glass on the truck. On the roof line you can see the rigging pipes for lights and other equipment showing it's a back lot set. See more »

Not Their Best But Better Than Most Musicals: Yam-O-Rama!
Let it be said that I am a great fan of the RKO Astaire-Rogers musicals; that established, I also feel this is easily the weakest of the lot, for all kinds of reasons--and the script and the music itself are two of the drawbacks in a comedy that seems dreadfully drawn-out in spite of the fact that at 83 minutes, its the shortest film in the series; the plot a largely somewhat dull run-around concerning psychoanalysis. With two of the worlds most brilliant dancers, however, there are bound to be high spots and worth waiting for is The Yam, an incredibly choreographed, traveling dance routine that takes both stars through drawing rooms and patios, and ends with some of the most spectacular lifts Astaire ever managed, Rogers in the air and all smiles. It's fun to see Jack Carson in his first major film part, and little-known Luella Gear gets off a few off-color zingers. Ralph Bellamy is his usual respectable bore, and the final song Change Partners is a perfect classic of feeling matched perfectly with ensuing action. Not a stinker by any means, but for both stars, not one of their best.
