This is generally considered to be the "screen debut" of Marilyn Monroe, although most of her footage was cut. She is visible just for a fleeting second or less as she descends the church steps and says, "Hi Rad," to June Haver's character as everyone is coming out of church on Sunday morning. See more »
The movie was premiered in Sedalia, Missouri,on a snowy March 10, 1948, not Sedalia Kansas as listed. The only other town with the name Sedalia is in Colorado! Sedalia held a parade in honor of the visiting stars Lon McCallister, Collene Townsend, Luanne Hogan, and Betty Ann Lynn, The premier is still talked about by old timers who marched in it and viewed the movie. While it was the only movie premiered in Sedalia, the city gained further fame as the end of trail town in the TV series RAWHIDE in the 1960s. RAWHIDE gave Clint Eastwood his career start and he even visited Sedalia in January 1959 to promote the program. Sedalia is celebrating it's 150 Anniversary in 2010, and Clint Eastwood is being invited back to participate in a Eastwood Film Festival. The area around Sedalia was famous for breeding high quality MISSOURI MULES, thus the reason for the selection of Sedalia for the premier.
