This was June Haver's only full-length film in black and white. Her other 14 releases between 1943 and 1953 were shot in three-strip Technicolor, something of a record for a Hollywood Golden Age actress.

This is one of those forced early-'50's sex comedies without the sex. Lundigan is contrived and insipid, and Marilyn Monroe is totally miscast as his old Army buddy, Bobby Stephens. Henry Kulky provides the movie's only truly interesting character. When he is on-screen, he is making a different-and-better movie than the rest of the players.
