Because the "Merry Widow Waltz" never comes to a musical conclusion in The Merry Widow (1934), the final thirty-two bars of the sequence as presented in That's Entertainment, Part 2 are actually borrowed from MGM's 1952 remake of The Merry Widow, while the visuals accompanying them remain from the 1934 version.
