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."

Another Michael Curtiz-directed hit for Doris Day...
7 January 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

After the success of her first starring role in ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS ('48), Doris is re-united with Jack Carson for another pleasant musical trifle with Doris as the girl singer Carson finds in order to replace conceited band singer (Lee Bowman) who refuses to sign another contract. Along for a few laughs are Eve Arden (more adept than usual with her punch lines) and S.Z. "Cuddles" Sakall, fracturing English and being generally amusing as a radio producer.

The only thing that lifts this out of the ordinary is the cartoon sequence using "Hungarian Rhapsody" as the music for the "Freddy Get Ready" sequence combining live action with the animated Bugs Bunny.

Other than that, if you like Doris Day, she has another tailor-made role as a band singer who gets to sing pleasant ballads like the title tune and adds some fresh appeal to the role of a girl Carson wants to turn into a new singing sensation.

A better than average little musical thanks to the performances of Day, Carson and Lee Bowman--as well as the always enjoyable Eve Arden.
