TRIVIA: The climax of "Never Gonna Dance" took 47 takes in a single day and required many demanding spins of Ginger Rogers; her feet bled.

This was Ginger Rogers' favorite of her films with Fred Astaire.

In "The Way You Look Tonight", Ginger Rogers is seen to be washing her hair. The crew tried various soaps, shampoos, and even egg white, but it always ran down her face too quickly. They achieved success with whipped cream.

In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked this as the #90 Greatest Movie of All Time. It was the first inclusion of this film on the list.

Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.

The film is included on Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" list.

The quarter that Penny and Lucky argue about is worth $4.50 in 2018; the $25,000 Lucky needs is worth $450,622.
