Universal Pictures, intending to distribute this Technicolor English musical in the US, previewed the film, retitled "My Heart Goes Crazy," around metropolitan New York City on the evenings of September 10, 11 and 12, 1946. Over five months had elapsed when, on February 27, 1947, Production Code chief Joseph I. Breen
contacted the J. Arthur Rank
Organisation's branch office at the recently renamed (on October 1, 1946) Universal-International Pictures. Breen objected to a pair of Sid Field
comic sketches, which the censor judged to be inappropriately sexual. In addition, he maintained that Production Code guidelines would not permit footage of two women dressed in cleavage-revealing outfits. Universal-International, at this juncture, sought to bow out of the distribution arrangement. On April 4, 1947, the Code administration tentatively certified the movie, provided that a Sid Field routine about photography be eliminated. Five months had passed before Rank notified Code officials on September 10 that his motion picture would not play in US markets. Nearly six years later the Rank Organisation finally chose United Artists to distribute the picture stateside, beginning on July 22, 1953. The American version, using the title "My Heart Goes Crazy," ran just 80 minutes, as compared to the 126-minute length of the British release. See more
