Fred Astaire made a film in 1951 called ROYAL WEDDING. The famous sequence in which he dances up the walls and on the ceiling was accompanied by a song called "You're All The World To Me."

In 1953, MGM was starring Joan Crawford for the first time in color and they created a film called TORCH SONG. The budget was extremely small, and they used not only an outtake from THE BAND WAGON (1953) called "Two-Faced Woman," they also used Fred's dance music from ROYAL WEDDING for a sequence with Joan and Charles Walters.

Compare the two.
