  • June Allyson was first cast in the role of Ellen, but became pregnant. 'Garland, Judy' was cast next, but MGM terminated her studio contract.
  • Moira Shearer was considered for the role of Anne.
  • The story was loosely based on the real-life partnership of Fred Astaire and his sister Adele.
  • The ship's rocking during "Open Your Eyes" was based on the Astaires' own dancing experience on a voyage to London in 1923. A boat-rocking device was used to create the film effect.
  • The idea of dancing with a clothes tree had been suggested to Astaire earlier by Hermes Pan.
