Continuity mistake: When Gene Kelly does his classic Singin' in the Rain dance scene, it's only raining in the front half of the shot. In long shots, you can see that the back part of the scene is enjoying clear weather. And, as he goes left, the rain slants right and vice versa.

Don Lockwood: What's your lofty mission in life that lets you sneer at my humble profession?
Kathy Selden: I'm an actress.
Don Lockwood: What?
Kathy Selden: On the stage.
Don Lockwood: Oh, on the stage. Well, I'd like to see you act. What are you in right now? I could brush up on my English, or bring along an interpreter. That is if they'd let in a movie actor.
Kathy Selden: I'm not in a play right now, but I will be. I'm going to New York...
Don Lockwood: Oh, you're going to New York! And then someday, we'll all hear of you, won't we? Kathy Selden as Juliet, as Lady Macbeth, as King Lear! You'll have to wear a beard for that one, of course.

Suggested correction: Not really trivia, as none of the songs was written for the film; most were written in the 1930s, some earlier, and the latest in the late 1940s. The title song, for example, was first published in 1929. So it's hardly surprising the script came after.

Question: Does anyone know what a "mammy" is? It is said twice during this movie.
