A night club's coatroom attendant who's in-love with the club's singer accidentally sips a drugged drink that makes him dream he's French King Louis XV courting the infamous Madame Du Barry.
The musical numbers for Du Barry Was a Lady (1943) were choreographed by Charles Walters, who had been brought to MGM on the strength of his performance opposite Betty Grable in the original Broadway production. Ironically, Walters found himself creating the dances for Gene Kelly, playing the role Walters had originated on stage.
What are you doing, playing one-nighters in dressing rooms?
During the scene in Madame Du Barry's boudoir when King Louis XV is chasing Du Barry around the dressing table, a man sitting in a chair can be seen reflected in the mirror.
The Three Oxford Boys are credited orally by the MC ('Gene Kelly') as The Oxford Boys.
