Trivia

Retrospective put together to celebrate M-G-M's 50 year anniversary.


Quotes

Frank Sinatra: The year is 1929; the singer, Cliff Edwards, also known as Ukelele Ike. The film: "Hollywood Revue"; it is the first all-talking, all-singing, all-dancing movie ever made. In the years that followed, "Singin' in the Rain" would become a theme song ...


Goofs

Liza Minnelli states that she regularly rushed home from school to visit whichever set that her mother Judy Garland was working on at MGM. In fact, Judy Garland's final film at MGM was Summer Stock in 1949, when Ms Minnelli was all of 3 years old and, presumably in Kindergarten, unable to rush anywhere unaccompanied.


Crazy Credits

Before Leo the Lion roars at the beginning, the words "Beginning our next 50 years" appear in the lion's traditional place in the MGM logo, which itself has been modified to indicate the company's golden anniversary.


Alternate Versions

In the "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody" sequence from The Great Ziegfeld (1936), some prints have a slightly different narration from Frank Sinatra ending with "and somewhere in that loveliness, you'll find Dennis Morgan singing the song." In the theatrical print, presented in 1.85 widescreen, Sinatra adds the line, "If anyone could afford to film this number today, it might look something like this," as the pillarboxed "standard flat" image is expanded to fill the frame.
