Trivia

Bing Crosby's final film.


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

During her narrative section, Liza Minnelli erroneously states that her mother, Judy Garland "once told me that MGM seemed obsessed with Shirley Temple. They even offered Fox Clark Gable and Jean Harlow just to obtain Temple for a picture Metro was preparing. But the deal fell through, so MGM went head with the picture and cast Momma in the role of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939)." In fact, Jean Harlow died before MGM began preparations for The Wizard of Oz.


Crazy Credits

After the closing credits, some video releases include the film's original instrumental exit overture.


Alternate Versions

The 2004 DVD release presents the film in both an enhanced widescreen transfer (which replicates the film's original theatrical presentation, with the sides of the screen"masked" for the 1.37:1 material, as presented in the original theatrical release) and a standard 4:3 version that properly letterboxes Cinemascope sequences. In the widescreen version the image often expands (as it did during the film's initial theatrical engagements) so that especially splashy musical numbers not originally shot in Cinemascope can fill the entire screen. DVD release also includes both overture and exit music.
