Trivia

When the production wrapped, the producer asked the dancers what he should title it. "Over the Top, for that step about going over the top of the trenches in World War One," said Coles; "Yeah," said Atkins, "but better make it Over the Top to Bebop, 'cause we're still inventing stuff." See more »
