Four songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed were deleted after previews: "Sun Showers" (sung by Charles Igor Gorin), "Got a Pair of New Shoes" (sung and danced by Eleanor Powell), a reprise of "Yours and Mine" (sung by Judy Garland and a boys choir), and the beginning of the "Your Broadway and Mine" finale (sung by Garland and the MGM chorus). "Got a Pair of New Shoes" and "Sun Showers" were later sung by Garland in Thoroughbreds Don't Cry, the latter being cut as well. Most of Powell's tap solo to "Got a Pair of New Shoes" was included in the compilation film The Great Morgan.
The singing voice of Eleanor Powell was dubbed by Marjorie Lane.
