Trivia
Fred Astaire's wife died during filming, and between some takes he would retreat to his trailer and cry. That's why, in some scenes, his eyes look red and swollen.
Share this
Fred Astaire was 56 years old at the time the movie was shot. Leslie Caron was only 24.

Despite being listed on IMDb as an uncredited extra in this film, well known actor James Cromwell explained on the 11 July 2013 episode of the Opie and Anthony Show radio program that it was a different actor with his same name that appeared in this film.

Goofs
When Jervis is about to play the drums for Griggs, his brushes suddenly turn into sticks between shots.

When Julie draws Daddy Long Legs on the chalk board, the arms are drawn at a downward angle. In the distant shots, the arms are noticeably more horizontal.

In the top-hat dance number with Jervis and Julie, she is wearing a light blue ribbon around her waste; in the poster that includes a still from that scene, the waist ribbon is red.
