Facts about

A scene with a dance to "When I'm Out With the Belle of New York," by Vera- Ellen and chorus, was cut from the film.
The "walking/dancing on air" SPFX were done with a traveling matte. This is especially evident when Fred Astaire is dancing alone near the top of the monument. His cigarette smoke is visible only so long as it is over his body, vanishing immediately as it moves to the side.
The song "Baby Doll" was composed by Harry Warren/Johnny Mercer for "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" but deleted before release. The DVD special features of that film include part of the number sung by Gene Kelly and danced by Kelly and Esther Williams. The new version sung by Fred Astaire and danced by Astaire and Vera-Ellen is exactly the same, with lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green.
