Two of the three original songs from the movie became top ten hits on the music charts. "Where the Lazy River Goes By" went to #7 in a recording by Teddy Wilson and His Orchestra with a vocal by Midge Williams on the Brunswick label and "There's Something in the Air" by Shep Fields and his Rippling Rhythm Orchestra, with a vocal by Bob Goday, on the Bluebird label went to #5.

I have not only seen the movie but also had the privilege of reading the book. The book was well written and as in most cases was better then the movie. I am a bit partial seen as how I also knew the writer. He was my great uncle on my Mothers side. I would spend the summers with him & would read his other works. Sadly Uncle Harry passed away Thanksgiving 1975. It's a shame no other movies were made from his works as they to would have been very good as well. My mother still has a set of Harry Hamiltons complete works But won't let anyone touch them for fear of being destroyed. If you haven't seen the movie then you're missing out and if you have then you no what I'm talking about.
