Trivia

Arthur Freed bought the rights to the Broadway musical "Very Warm For May", music by Jerome Kern and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, as the starting point for the film, originally meant as a vehicle for Judy Garland. In typical Hollywood manner, by the time they were done all the original songs except "All the Things You Are" had been dropped, replaced by material from other writers and the project had been handed over to Jack Cummings. Three of the original songs were sung, fragmentarily, by George Murphy sitting at a piano waiting for Ginny Simms to come out. The name of the original play is also mentioned in passing in one of the scenes. See more »

Goofs

This is an excellent movie if you like 40s musicals.
3 May 2000 | by (S.C.) – See all my reviews

Ginny Simms was at her best in acting and at the height of her beauty. The movie is worth watching just to see Ginny. Tommy Dorsey was great as usual, wish he had played more tunes. George Murphy, Ben Blue, Rochester, Lena Horne, Nancy Walker all helped make the movie very enjoyable.
