The original ending for the film had Van Johnson hearing over his radio that the ship on which his lady-love, June Allyson, was serving had been sunk. Johnson then died and the picture ended. The New York Times reported on November 17, 1946 that 40 percent of the audience opinion cards handed out at a preview of the film in Los Angeles demanded that Johnson's character live. MGM spent $50,000 to shoot scenes for a new ending, which also had Allyson's character surviving as well.
Third of six movies that paired June Allyson and Van Johnson.
"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on January 24, 1949 with Van Johnson reprising his film role.
