Upon Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh starring in their first film together, Houdini (1953), there was a controversy who would get top billing. Janet Leigh had more seniority, as she made her feature film debut in 1947, while Tony Curtis (who had played bit parts and extras) finally made his in 1951. However, Leigh said that she would take second billing to Curtis in any picture they made together. Hence the reason Curtis gets billing over Leigh in this film.
