Edit
Trivia When the dance sequence with Gene Kelly and Jerry the Mouse was screened for MGM executives, someone noticed that although Kelly's reflection shone on the floor during his dancing, Jerry's did not. This required animators William Hanna, Joseph Barbera and their team to go back in and draw Jerry's reflection on the floor as he was dancing. See more »
Goofs The factual mistake about Joe's rating chevrons was incorrectly entered as a goof. The Gunners Mate rating badge, among some others, was worn on the right sleeve until April 2, 1949. See more »
