Warner’s Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933) opens up with the iconic musical number “The Gold Diggers’ Song (We’re in the Money)” sung by Ginger Rogers. On the second chorus of the song, Ginger sings the lyrics in Pig Latin where, in an extreme close-up of her face, ”We’re in the Money” becomes “Ereway inhay the oneymay”. This version of the chorus was Ginger’s idea.
One day on the set, Ginger was handed the song and told to learn it by that evening since the number was to be shot the following day. After practising the lyrics for hours, Ginger started goofing around and, instead of singing the song as it was written, she translated it into Pig Latin. Warner’s production chief at the time, Darryl F. Zanuck, heard her and was so struck by the novelty of the queer play of words that he ordered Ginger to sing in Pig Latin when the shot was taken.
