Dorita: You are here to kick up some more heels, huh?


Mrs. Peyton Potter: [after meeting Dorita] That hat! I'd better watch my lampshades and bell-cords!

Facts about

On loan from MGM, Busby Berkeley, directing and choreographing this Twentieth Century-Fox musical, was given his first opportunity to work using perfected, three-strip Technicolor. Thirteen years before, Mr. Berkeley had choreographed for producer Samuel Goldwyn the Eddie Cantor frolic, Whoopee!, shot in early Technicolor.
The songs for this film were originally written for the eventually abandoned MGM picture "Babes in Hollywood".
Director Busby Berkeley was free to do this film because Judy Garland had him fired from Girl Crazy after he shot the film's ending number, "I Got Rhythm." Norman Taurog took over the direction of "Girl Crazy" and, rather than pay him his contract salary for not working, MGM loaned Berkeley to 20th Century-Fox for this film.
