  • This was the only film in which Clark Gable performed a dance number. He spent 6 weeks rehearsing the steps with the dance director, George King, and practicing at home with his wife, 'Lombard, Carole' . Because of his fear of messing it up during a take, the set was closed during the filming of this sequence.
  • When Gable had to sing "Puttin on the Ritz" he actually had to be carried off by Les Blondes, so they saved that sceen for last in case he was injured. On the day of the shooting 'Carole Lombard' came to watch and was amazed that it only took one take.
