When Serafin is dancing to "Nina" one of the dancer's loses her flower in her hair. It is visible on the gazebo floor in one shot, then it's gone and reappears in her hair in a later part of the dance routine. See more »
Judy Garland may never have been so funny again (or had such a wonderfully over-the-top script to work with) as in "The Pirate." Her best scene by far comes toward the end, when she discovers that Gene Kelly is not the dashing pirate he's pretending to be. At first, she makes a great show of passion toward her "dream lover," but her temper soon snaps and Kelly is dodging everything from vases to chairs.
Kelly is also marvelous, both in his dancing and his comic delivery, which meshes perfectly with Garland's. My personal favorite: "Oh senorita, don't marry that pumpkin."
Not to be missed!
