Trivia

Director Delmar Davis ran into a Paris shop after filming a street scene in front of it with Dennis Morgan and Viveca Lidfors. The proprietor was at loss to understand why the "crazy American" had insisted upon purchasing every item in the window. Davis needed to replicate the window display on a Hollywood set for the sound dubbing sessions. See more »
