That's Entertainment, Part II (1976) Poster

Alternate Versions

The original release print ran 133 minutes and contained a handful of sequences that were ultimately shorn from the general release print. In the first section, you can see Astaire and Kelly rotating enormous photos of each song that appears in that section. One of them is "You Stepped Out of a Dream" from Ziegfeld Girl (1941), which originally appeared between "Fascinating Rhythm" and "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'." In the Great Songwriters section, "Lonesome Polecat" from Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (1954) originally appeared between "The Lady is a Tramp" and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." In the 'Shubert Alley' sequence, Astaire and Kelly dance among sheet music covers boasting song titles that eventually appear in the section. Among them are "Concerto in F" from An American In Paris" which originally appeared between "Triplets" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" (in fact, due to hasty editing, Oscar Levant's final "Bravo!" can still be heard over the first image of Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien). Fred Astaire's "Drum Crazy" from Easter Parade (1948) was also slated for this sequence (replaced by "Steppin' Out With My Baby"), as was "The Stanley Steamer" from Summer Holiday (1948), which was to have capped the entire section (it was ultimately replaced by Kelly's "I Got Rhythm").
Swedish cinema version ran only 122 min (i.e., 11 min shorter) than the original cut. Following musical numbers were removed:
  • The Intro music was deleted


  • LADY BE GOOD ( "Lady be good" with Ann Sothern and Robert Young)


  • SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS ("Lonesome Polecats")


  • BROADWAY SERENADE ("Broadway Serenade" with Lew Ayres, Al Shean; "For Every Lonely Hearts": Jeanette MacDonald)
