Based on the film's art direction, it is relatively easy to detect which songs were dropped from the final release print. "You Stepped Out of a Dream" from Ziegfeld Girl (1941) was clearly intended to be part of the opening sequence, as it is the only one of the rotating photo stills in Astaire and Kelly's dance routine that never materializes on the screen. Two other numbers went so far as to be listed in the films's souvenir program before being cut from the general release print. "Lonesome Polecat" from Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (1954) was situated between "All of You" and "The Lady is a Tramp" in the Great Songwriters sequence. Oscar Levant's rendition of "Concerto in F" from An American in Paris (1951) was slated to appear between "Triplets" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas; in fact, the editing out of Levant's solo was executed so last-minute that one can still hear his final cry of "Bravo!" sound-mixed with the first notes of Judy Garland's song.

The opening credits introduce not only hosts Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, but mention all the other performers from the clips before the 'That's Entertainment, pt 2' title card; all are done in different styles: names drawn in the sand, scrolls, inside a book, tiles spelled out on satin, inside a file cabinet, typed on stationery, branding iron, the 'Rank Organisation' gong, etc. See more
