Trivia

After nearly 10 years, Harry Warren, on loan from MGM, returned to write new songs for a Warner Bros. musical.(Ralph Blane was the lyricist.) For old time's sake, the score interpolated three Harry Warren standards for Doris Day to sing: "Nagasaki," lyrics by Mort Dixon; "I'll String Along with You," original lyrics by Al Dubin, "lullaby" lyrics by Ralph Blane; and "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby," lyrics by Johnny Mercer. This film was a remake of Twenty Million Sweethearts (1934), which had featured, among the tunes by Warren and Dubin, "I'll String Along with You," sung first as a Dick Powell solo, then as a duet by Mr. Powell and Ginger Rogers. For her disc on Columbia Records, Doris Day teamed with Buddy Clark to croon "I'll String Along with You." See more »

Goofs

During a montage showing Martha's rise to stardom, there's a shot of stacks of fan letters, all of them bearing the address of what turns out to be Martha's home address. Even in the far more innocent times in which the film was set, stars didn't publicly reveal their home addresses and virtually all fan mail would have been addressed to her movie studio or record label or simply "Hollywood."

Quotes

Grimes: No, look, you got me wrong, Little Red Riding Hood. I ain't no wolf.
Martha Gibson: Okay, but I'd hate to meet you in a forest on a dark night.

Just a Clarification
18 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie....it is very sweet and endearing. Doris Day was just lovely. She was the quintessential girl-next-door, an all American girl of the 1950's.

In regard to the question about her son in the film, in case no on responded to the latest posting....It was Jack Carson's character I believe who made reference to the boy's dad being killed in the war.

There was no other mention of it...and strange that the boy would ask Jack Carson if HE was his father. But the boy was only about 4 years old and could have meant, "are you going to be my father?"

The cartoon segment was a lot of fun, and the happy ending was rewarding.

They certainly don't make sweet films like this anymore.
