At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. See more »
At around the 53-minute mark, a shot shows a badly cracked floor tile. When an extra walks across the adjoining tile, it lifts up on one end and makes a SPLUNK sound when it falls back into place. See more »
"Why So Gloomy?", a musical number featuring Jane Powell and a Chinese boy, was cut from the film. It is included in the "Musical Jukebox" feature of the 2004 That's Entertainment! DVD box set. See more »
I'm a bit late to this discussion, but the reviewer who kept harping on Powell not being an actress makes no sense. She carries herself quite well; of course she can act. Geez--she's charming and handles the role well. Someone who can't act would come across as a clueless amateur. Powell did just fine here and elsewhere. Look at SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS.
Oh yeah, and ROYAL WEDDING. Powell did well opposite many a Hollywood star.
Anyway, even though this movie is hardly among the classics, it's a fine showcase for Powell.
