Facts about

In the finale of the movie, a musical scene entitled "I Got Rhythm" Ginger Gray (played by Judy Garland) and Danny Churchill Jr. (played by Mickey Rooney) are lifted by a group of cowboys, while guns were going off around them. Garland was terribly afraid to do this shot, and Rooney had to coax her into it.
Judy Garland's character's name, Ginger Gray, is a tribute to Ginger Rogers, who played the part on Broadway when the character was named Molly Gray. Ginger Rogers wrote that one night onstage in the play, her costar Allen Kearns accidentally said: "Ginger, I love you" instead of "Molly". The mistake got such a huge laugh from the audience that they decided to continue to do that in subsequent performances, pretending it was a mistake. (Source: "Ginger: My Story". New York: Harper-Collins, 1991)
"Bronco Busters" (music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin), sung by Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Nancy Walker and chorus, was prerecorded but not filmed. The song is heard on the soundtrack CD from Rhino, and also on "The Mickey Rooney & Judy Garland Collection," a Warner Home Video release.
