This is the only film in Judy Garland's MGM canon where her difficulties with weight fluctuation became apparent on the screen, as her appearance varies wildly between shots captured out of sequence during a production that extended to six months based on Garland's rampant illnesses and frequent absences. It was the troubled production of Summer Stock (1950) that led MGM to fire Garland after filming completed. See more »

Joe D. Ross:
We're trying to tell a story with music, and song, and dance. Well, not just with words. For instance, if the boy tells the girl that he loves her, he just doesn't say it, he sings it.
Why doesn't he just say it?
Joe D. Ross:
Why? Oh, I don't know, but it's kind of nice.

I actually made a point to see this film after reading about Miss Garland. The final "Get Happy" scene was shot weeks after the film wrapped and Miss Garland was sent to a "clinic"...she was called back only weeks later and fell into a deep depression and was, suppposedly, not in good good shape mentally as she shot that scene but if you notice, she is at least 20 pounds lighter in the scene than the rest of the film. I think this just shows how brilliant Miss Garland really was, to be so troubled but still nail the scene and song that would later be a staple in her act...she truly had something in her that few have ever and will ever possess.
