The movie, included as a character Sherman Billingsley the owner of the real stork club. During the movie, he talks to Danny, Judy's fiancée telling him that his wife and two daughters were the only women in his life. This is contradictory to the real life Sherman, who had a longtime affair with Ethel Merman. See more »

Unfortunately,the story about the people who worked at the Stork Club could have made the premise much more believable if the could have been included in the story. Cugat is there but Walter Winchell and possible cameos by regular movie stars could have perked some interest.The adamant Fred Armour at the velvet rope,admitting only those who passed Billingsleys' OK and Jack Spooner,a hilarious bartender who had a quip for every famous face that he saw. My observations are first hand because I was employed from October 1942 to January 1943 when I left to go into service. Sometimes the most obvious stories seem to escape movie makers in quest of their buck.
