Originally M.G.M. wanted Anthony Quinn or Desi Arnaz for the role of Danny, Rita Hayworth as Dolores Sweets Ramirez and Maria Montez for the role of Fran(Cesca). Maria Montez was dating, who would become her second husband and father of her daughter Christina, Jean-Pierre Aumont who was under contract to Metro. Montez was under contract to Universal Pictures. M.G.M. wanted to cash in on that publicity of the romance between Aumont and Montez. Montez was as equally as big a star as Hedy Lamarr and the same type. So M.G.M. probably then decided to put Betty Wells in the role of Cesca. See more »

I find it difficult to believe that this picture is not remembered more fondly by film critics and historians. I went into this film expecting nothing more than a few chuckles and a few yawns. I was wrong! This picture should be remembered in the same light as other great comedies of the 1940's such as THE LADY EVE, ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, and THE BANK DICK.
