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.
During the clip from Kiss Me Kate (1953), Gene Kelly identifies Ann Miller and Tommy Rall, Bob Fosse and Carol Haney, and Bobby Van, but does not give the name of Van's dancing partner, who was Kelly's second wife, Jeanne Coyne. Kelly was still saddened by her death from leukemia three years earlier.
Cyd Charisse. Lovely, Cyd Charisse. How she dances. This is from "Singin' in the Rain."
During the "Invitation To The Dance" animated sequence, the costumes of the cartoon guards change from green to blue in less than a second.
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.
