Under contract to different record labels at the time - Bing Crosby at Decca and Bob Hope at Capitol - the duo could not produce for the marketplace a disc of their specialty number from the film, "Harmony" (music by Jimmy Van Heusen, lyrics by Johnny Burke). Decca, taking another tune from the score, united Bing with his frequent recording partners, The Andrews Sisters, for a best-selling single of the jaunty city song, "Tallahassee" (music and lyrics by Frank Loesser), a ditty introduced in the picture by Dorothy Lamour and the usually non-singing Alan Ladd. On a Capitol 78, Johnny Mercer teamed with The King Cole Trio for their take on "Harmony."

Includes a five-minute color Puppetoon segment "Romeow and Julicat" by George Pal. It turned out to be Pal's last Puppetoon short; he split up with Paramount afterwards to become an independent producer.
