Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire present more golden moments from the MGM film library, this time including comedy and drama as well as classic musical numbers.

The greatest entertainment since "That's Entertainment!"
Did You Know?
In the "Shubert Alley" section of the film, Astaire and Kelly dance together past marquees with famous song titles on them as a means of introducing the next selection of film clips. However, some of these song titles do not appear in the final print: "Moses Supposes" was supplanted by "Good Morning," "Drum Crazy" was cut in favor of "Steppin' Out With My Baby," and "The Stanley Steamer" was ultimately deleted in favor of "I Got Rhythm." None of the replacement songs are featured upon the marquees in the introductory sequence. See more
Cyd Charisse. Lovely, Cyd Charisse. How she dances. This is from "Singin' in the Rain."
The opening credits introduce not only hosts Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, but mention all the other performers from the clips before the 'That's Entertainment, pt 2' title card; all are done in different styles: names drawn in the sand, scrolls, inside a book, tiles spelled out on satin, inside a file cabinet, typed on stationery, branding iron, the 'Rank Organisation' gong, etc. See more
