In her one-line bit as a defense-plant welder, Judy Holliday delivered this observation: "I knew a girl once who had carborundum in her teeth, and she turned into a radio-receiving set." See more »

It's still a grand old place, must be at least a hundred and twenty-five years old.
Oh come now, Colonel, it couldn't get this old in a hundred and twenty-five years!

I saw this film in 2001 on American Movie Classics (when that channel was still showing commercial-free classic films). The middle section of the film as shown had three ten minute sections which were scrambled and not shown in the proper order. It was confusing to watch the film as a result. With the aid of two VCRs, I painstakingly copied the film and edited the sections into correct order so that I could view the film properly.
Fox Movie Channel showed the film on Monday (Memorial Day) and I was surprised to see that the same scrambled version that was shown on AMC was shown on the Fox Channel. I would have thought that they would have corrected it by now, seven years later!
The film is being released on DVD next month as part of the Carmen Miranda Collection. I'm wondering whether the DVD will have a correct version or whether it will still be the messed up version.
