This piece, along with a fabulous dance sequence, was actually filmed for the
movie, but cut in the final editing because (1) the movie was too long, and (2)
the number did little to advance the plot. Prints of the scene survive, and
are included in many of the "restored editions" of the movie now available on
video tape.
