Since Ginger's legs were insured for $500,000 they were strapped with boards and padded for protection during the fight scene. Filming on The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (1939) started soon after this film wrapped, and RKO could not afford to have an injured musical star. See more »

The only pairing of Ginger and Jimmy Stewart is a remarkable comedy with almost no wasted moments. Ginger's sex appeal is much in evidence in this film -- indeed, the film is full of sexual tension as Ginger and Jimmy strive to consummate their marriage -- but are constantly interrupted. In addition to many and varied bits of comedy, there is also a great little dance number where Ginger and Beluah Bondi (!) do the "Big Apple." The cast is perfect and the comedy is timeless. Too bad this is not out on video or DVD! One of the best Ginger solo starring efforts, and watchable again and again!
