The ups and downs of Florenz Ziegfeld Jr., famed producer of extravagant stage revues, are portrayed.
The set for "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody" took months to build and cost over $200,000. This was substantially more than it cost the real Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. to produce a whole show, according to former Ziegfeld girl Doris Eaton.
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.:
Gentlemen never argue about gentlemen's gentlemen.
Ziegfeld is depicted as dying in New York City. He actually died of lung disease in Hollywood, California, a few days after moving there from a specialty hospital in New Mexico.
The opening credits display the title of the film and the names of the stars in marquee lights, as they would be on Broadway.
