Villains Paul Panzer and Francis Carlyle (who really ought to be top-billed since they have the most to do every chapter?so far) are walking a... Read full article

Facts about

Two songs written by Cole Porter for Judy Garland were revised in the release print. Judy's first rendition of "Love of My Life," which included the verse, was not used. However, on the MGM Records soundtrack album, listeners heard Miss Garland's initial prerecording. Also dropped from the movie was the original "Mack the Black," intended as the curtain-raiser. In the revamped version transferred to midway, replacing the feverish Garland-Gene Kelly "Voodoo" number, Cole Porter's somewhat violent "Mack the Black" lyrics, including a reference to killing babies, were toned down. A portion of the original "Mack the Black" footage with Judy can be viewed in the trailer. The three discarded prerecordings, along with the two final takes heard in the picture, are included on Rhino's soundtrack CD.
Film debut of Lola Albright.
