Trivia

Rita Hayworth was pregnant during production. As a result, the musical numbers were filmed first, before the pregnancy began to show. As filming progressed, great care was taken to hide her growing belly with muffs, furniture and purses. See more »

Goofs

At the very beginning of the picture (1'20) you see the front of the building "Music Box Theater". In the UK the word is theatre. See more »

Quotes

Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: [in a bomb shelter] Scared?
Rosalind Bruce: Naturally.
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: So am I.
Rosalind Bruce: Well, that's not very comforting. That's like having a lifeguard say he's afraid of the water.
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: Oh, I don't mean this. I mean you. You did a little bombing tonight yourself, you know. That dance you did...
[imitates whistling of falling bomb]
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: In fact, you bombed from a very low altitude. It's not only unfair, it's practically illegal.
Rosalind Bruce: Well, I'm sorry.
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: You should be.
Rosalind Bruce: I hope I didn't hit anything vital.

Momories of WWII
4 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film is based on a real theater and theater troop during WWII. The theater never closed its doors despite the Blitz with bombs falling all around and over it. (It was an underground theater.) It's a part of England's history.

This isn't the best film ever made, but certainly not the worst as some have made it out to be. It's simply a light musical mixed with drama.

To see another take on this story be sure to see "Mrs. Henderson Presents" with Dame Judy Dench and Bob Hoskins. It's a fantastic film that really presents the way it was "back then." I know, because I was around then and this film brought back some good and some bad memories.
