Trivia

The novelty song "I Tick, Tick, Tick" that Doris Day's character sings for her first audition was written to take advantage of the publicity surrounding the atomic clock which had just been invented. This clock, now even more precise, is now the standard to which all clocks in the US are set. See more »

Goofs

During a montage showing Martha's rise to stardom, there's a shot of stacks of fan letters, all of them bearing the address of what turns out to be Martha's home address. Even in the far more innocent times in which the film was set, stars didn't publicly reveal their home addresses and virtually all fan mail would have been addressed to her movie studio or record label or simply "Hollywood."

Quotes

Doug Blake: Could I have her name and address, please?
Sourpuss Manager: We can't give out that information. This is a music company. Not a lonelyhearts club.

Loved this movie!
28 April 2002 | by Barbs1027See all my reviews

I'm an old Doris Day fan from way back. I loved this movie, because it was sheer, delightful entertainment. It was post-World War 2 and just what the movie-going audience seemed to be "eating up" during that time in our history. First of all, it had a wonderful look to it - the sunny southern California locale, handsome co-star, Lee Bowman and romantic not-so-handsome co-star, Jack Carson. The story has some dark undertones when Doris finds herself duped into believing the object of her desire is nothing more than an egotistical, spotlight-grabbing, soon-to-be "has-been". However, the songs are bright and beautiful and Doris has never had a better showcase for her talent. This movie will take you away to an innocent time, if only for a little while. Try it - you'll like it!
