Trivia

In the "Shubert Alley" section of the film, Astaire and Kelly dance together past marquees with famous song titles on them as a means of introducing the next selection of film clips. However, some of these song titles do not appear: "Moses Supposes" was supplanted by "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas;" "Drum Crazy" was cut in favor of "Steppin' Out With My Baby;" "The Stanley Steamer" was ultimately deleted in favor of "I Got Rhythm." None of the replacement songs are featured in marquees in the introductory sequence. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

The Weakest of the Trilogy
27 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

This particular TE! is very much trapped in time. While it does have a bunch of great songs and pieces, the musical interludes in between old footage are almost embarrassing. The other 2 TE!s were much better.

That's More Entertainment! on the other hand, was absolutely hideous.
