Trivia: Director Gene Kelly's first choice to play Minnie Fay was not E J Peaker, but Sandy Duncan, who he had seen dance and sing on Broadway and was perfect for the part - she did a screen test but was turned down. Kelly next wanted Ann-Marget but was also turned down. Peaker went on to a short nine film career, Hello Dolly was her first, she was better known for her TV work.

Question: In the turkey dinner scene the cranberry sauce is called beets several times. Are they beets?

Answer: Beets are served with the dinner, as a side dish to the turkey and dumplings. Dolly tries repeatedly to serve them to Horace ("you salt your beets, I'll salt mine"), who repeatedly proclaims his distaste for them. There is no specific mention of cranberry sauce. But they'd be easy to confuse, as both are red and have a consistency not too dissimilar from one another.
