Facts about

Eleanor Powell's number for this film was originally shot for "Broadway Melody of 1943," a project MGM abandoned before it was completed. "Broadway Melody of 1943" was to have co-starred Powell and Gene Kelly, who both appear in "Thousands Cheer" but are never seen together.
Eleanor Powell's first color film and last MGM film.
Some cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): Connie Gilchrist (Taxicab driver), Daisy Bufford (Maid), Pierre Watkin (Alex), Edmund Mortimer (Guest) and Lionel Barrymore (Announcer). Bryant Washburn Jr. was announced as a cast member, but only his father, Bryant Washburn, had a role in the movie. Gus Schilling was also announced as a cast member, but he was not in the movie either. Barrymore is referenced by a comic impersonation performed by Mickey Rooney.
