The number "Get Happy" was filmed several months after the rest of the film. During that time, Judy Garland lost considerable weight, which led to a longtime legend that the number was shot for a different film. In fact, Garland had worn the exact same costume in a deleted musical number from Easter Parade (1948), which also contributed to the false legend. See more »
When Esme is washing the dishes the first morning with 'the crew' helping with the chores, in the long shot she reaches up to the shelf to add more soap flakes to the dishwater, and is shaking the box over the water. In the next shot her hands are both submerged in the soapy water, no box to be seen. See more »
I like it. Let me explain, I like Gene Kelly and I like Judy Garland so I like this movie. It's a little weak on the plot, but there are a lot of good reasons to see it. For example- this was Judy Garland's last film with M-G-M. It has Get Happy in it, which is now included on practically all of Judy's 'best of' CDs. It's great to hear, but watching the number is marvelous. This was the year just before one of Kelly's major achievements, An American in Paris, and it's nice to see the difference in his billing, character, etc. Also, there's the romantic number 'You Wonderful You', which bears a resemblance to 'You Were Meant For Me' in Singin' in the Rain with the stage lights and stuff. It's obvious that Gene Kelly picked up some things he liked and carried them with him. That's why I like this movie. Yes, it's cute and breezy, but sometimes you just want a Garland/Kelly musical!
P.S. And who could blame you? ; )
