"You Won't Forget Me" (music by Fred Spielman, lyrics by Kermit Goell), sung by Lena Horne, was cut from the movie. For years, Lena's prerecording was missing until rediscovered and then issued on the 1996 Rhino DC box set, "That's Entertainment!" Joan Crawford (dubbed by India Adams) later performed the number in Torch Song (1953).
