Did You Know?

Trivia Gene Kelly bought the roller skates for the "I Like Myself" number from "IT'S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER" down the block from his house at Pioneer Hardware on Beverly Drive. He also mentioned that the skates were not altered in any way - they weren't locked to his shoes, so when he tapped in them, he had no help. See more »
Goofs During the scene in the taxi just after Ted Riley (Gene Kelly) mentions Kid Mariachi to Jackie Leighton (Cyd Charisse), the street scene in the rear window of the taxi goes blank for about six frames. See more »

Quotes Kid Mariacchi: Where do you have to go?
Ted Riley: Tim's Bar on Third Avenue. It's a long way from here.
Kid Mariacchi: You're nuts. It's ten minutes.
Ted Riley: No, it's ten years.
