  • For the dance number "Let Yourself Go," choreographer Hermes Pan scouted several talented amateurs from Los Angeles dance halls. The best couple was spliced into the routine.
  • The role of Connie Martin was originally planned for Irene Dunne, but she was unavailable.
  • Harriet Hilliard darkened her hair for the role to heighten the contrast between her and Ginger Rogers.
  • During the final dance sequence on the boat it is possible to see Fred Astaire hit in the face by Rogers' beaded sleeve. The sequence was shot again 23 times in the hope of capturing the magic of that take without the accident, but it wasn't to be, and this original take was used.
  • Bugle call: see also Gay Divorcee, The (1934) and Roberta (1935).
