Joan Fontaine was pregnant during filming. The script, however, luckily indicated that her character wear a man's leather jacket which conveniently also covered her stomach. See more »
It's perfect natural for a girl to have doubts before getting married. In your case, certainly it isn't surprising; after all, you've been engaged six times.
Officially; if you want the unofficial total, you'll need an adding machine.

Though screwball comedies like Bringing Up Baby and It Happened One Night had run their cycle by World Way II, Universal was persuaded to try it again with this frothy story about runaway heiress Fontaine escaping her stuffy groom for the charms of pilot Jimmy Stewart who is running a shoestring flying service. Stewart's finesse with this genre shows as does Eddie Albert's as yet another snappy best friend. Fontaine is more sweet than brittle with a comedic line, but thanks to a great supporting cast like Porter Hall, Roland Young, Percy Kilbride, and a cigar-smoking chimp,You Gotta works pretty well. The frantic pace relaxes more than it should when the cast gets airborne, but this is a very entertaining film of its kind with more than a few laughs.
