Trivia

"Bud's Won't Bud" (music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by E.Y. Harburg), sung by Judy Garland, was prerecorded, possibly filmed but not used in the release print. For years, only a partial prerecording was thought to remain until the full recording was discovered and released in 2006 on Rhino's "That's Entertainment", CD box set. The tune, intended for 'Hannah Williams (I)' to sing in the 1937 Broadway musical "Hooray for What!" had been dropped out of town. Finally, in the Jeanette MacDonald vehicle Cairo (1942), "Buds Won't Bud" was presented on-screen, sung by Ethel Waters. See more »

A Pure Delight!!!!
28 August 2000 | by (Charmhaven, Australia) – See all my reviews

A movie made 60yrs ago, is still one of my favourites. If you want a light-hearted comedy, superbly acted & directed this may be the movie for you. Judy Garland was beautiful (as ever!) & her radiance in this film is one of the highlights. One could wax lyrical for ages about this film, but I won't. Just when you get the opportunity to view this film, do it. You won't be disappointed.
