Cyd Charisse's singing was dubbed by Carol Richards, Michael Kidd's by Jud Conlon. See more »

Goofs

In the 1945-1955 montage, when we get to 1953, the shot of the New Years Eve crowds at Times Square shows Sundown at the Criterion Theatre, so it's obviously New Years Eve 1941-1942 footage. See more »

Quotes

Jackie Leighton: I wouldn't bet on that.
Ted Riley: You know, there's a lot of things you shouldn't bet on; like that Shakespeare quote, for instance. It ain't The Tempest, Act 2, Scene 7. It's As You Like It, Act 2, Scene 7: Heigh-ho, sing heigh-ho! Unto the green holly, Most friendship is feigning, most loving - mere folly.

Note the mise en scene of his dance routines!
15 December 2000 | by (Belper,England) – See all my reviews

Just an aside,really:

You notice how sparsely Gene Kelly's finest numbers are shot? Long takes,little in the way of cinematic flair? Well,ponder this for a moment-he will often do something truly spectacular at the end of a take,leading one to wonder just how many times the poor chap put himself through the preceding minutes before getting it right...

A case in point is the justly famed (among those in the know) "Rollerskate Number":In order to demonstrate that the skates are,indeed,authentic,Kelly will swap-flawlessly-from "tap" to "glide" at the end of each take.

Incredible.

Compare and contrast,by the way,with protege Donald O'Connor's emulation in "I Love Melvin"-we never see thetwo movements co-existing within the same shot.

Gene Kelly made me want to dance when I was 11,and not feel like a poof for doing so.
