The screenplay was based on an original story that Rosalind Russell had written for herself in the 40s. Her schedule was busy and by the time it was developed by Universal into a film in 1956, she was too old for the role. In addition, she had played a sexually frustrated, matronly teacher the previous year in "Picnic." See more »
During the football game sequence, the quarterback throws a pass that is far too deep for receiver John Saxon to catch, but on the next cut it drops into his arms perfectly for the touchdown. See more »
I've got plenty of sense. I know this school isn't big enough to hold us both. It's either you or me, and all I care about is me.

Although John Saxon was billed conventionally in the opening titles, during the end titles there is one card listing the entire cast followed by a visual of John Saxon with the words "You have just seen a new personality JOHN SAXON." See more »
Wow, what a great piece of 50's trash! Lush, colorful sets, great old cars and Esther walking around in sexy 50's tight dresses. The plot has already been mentioned above so I won't rehash. One question that sticks out in my mind, who would say no to John Saxon, he is a sex god in this movie, like an hunkier, hornier Sal Mineo! If they had gotten George Nader to take his shirt off more in this it would have been a 50's wet dream! Sexual repression doesn't get any better than this movie! Even Saxon's dad played by Edward Andrews is an old perv..everything was so subtle in this era...Esther Willaims actually was a pretty good actress here, they should have used her in more movies like this!
