Four songs prerecorded by Judy Garland were not used in the film: Cole Porter's "Easy to Love" (available on the Rhino CD, "Judy Garland: Collectors' Gems from the M-G-M Films"); the patriotic "America (My Country Tis of Thee)" (written by Henry Carey and Samuel Francis Smith); plus two religious songs: "Abide with Me" and "The Rosary." Miss Garland's one musical moment in the release print was her unaccompanied rendition of "Happy Birthday to You" (music and lyrics by Mildred J. Hill and Patty S. Hill). The movie's original poster raves, "Mickey woos! Judy sings! Best Hardy yet!"
This film's initial telecast in Los Angeles took place Sunday 29 September 1957 on KTTV (Channel 11), followed by San Francisco 29 December 1957 on KGO (Channel 7) and by Philadelphia 21 May 1958 on WFIL (Channel 6). Although it would have been in the MGM film library under the control of WCBS (Channel 2), there is no reliable documentation that it was ever telecast in New York City at this time.
