When Doris Day's character is questioned by reporters about an affair she's supposedly having with S.Z. Sakall's character, one of them asks her, "Is it true you call him 'Cuddles'?" This is an inside joke, as Sakall's nickname in real life was "Cuddles". See more »

Another of my most enjoyable movie musicals with my favorite star, Doris Day, singing and dancing with Gene Nelson. I'll never forget the tap dance they did together going up a staircase-fantastic! An excellent cast includes Gladys George, and two of the funniest men around in the 50s: cute S.Z. Sakall and that buggy-eyed looney Billy DeWolfe who will tickle your funnybone. Sakall played in most of Doris' musicals and he is a character to remember! Whatever happened to Gene Nelson? He was surely a fine dancer!
