Because of Vic Damone's contract with Mercury Records, he was not heard on the MGM Records soundtrack album. Consequently, two Damone-Jane Powell ballads from the Nicholas Brodszky-Sammy Cahn score - the Oscar-nominated "Wonder Why," also "I Can See You" - were rerecorded by both singers for their respective labels. In addition, Mercury issued a disc of "How D'Ya Like Your Eggs in the Morning?" featuring Mr. Damone with The Pied Pipers. In the film, Vic sang this sprightly ditty with Miss Powell and The Four Freshmen. Their soundtrack recording is among the "Romantic Duets From MGM Classics," released on CD by Rhino. A fourth Powell-Damone match-up (and also a Danielle Darrieux-Fernando Lamas teaming in the film), a cozy strain called "We Never Talk Much (We Just Sit Around)," was redone by Miss Powell with male voices on an MGM Records single. The flip side had Jane performing a number sung and danced by Miss Darrieux' in the picture, "L'Amour Toujours (Tonight for Sure)." "Wonder Why," the Powell-Damone rendition plus Jane's solo version, along with her three other commercial takes, can be encountered on a CD named "A Heart That's Free," issued by Flare, a British label.

[Elizabeth has just met Andre, a Frenchman who speaks with an American accent.]
That's funny. You don't speak with a French accent.
My father is English, so I was educated in England.
But you don't speak with an English accent.
Why should I? I'm French!

I saw this film in the TCM listings and wondered why i had never heard let alone seen this musical.I thought that i knew most of the MGM musicals.well the reason is self evident,it is a real clinker.Everything about this film is second rate.there is not one single redeeming feature.I know that one does not expect too much from the plot in musical films but this was just ridiculous.Wendell Corey seemed as if he was trying to do a Walter Pigeon imitation.Even Jane Powell was lost in this mess.The songs were totally unmemorable and unnameable,This despite the fact that there was an Academy nomination for one song.The colour was effective was about the only thing to this films credit.
