This film's earliest documented telecast took place in Tucson Friday 7 September 1956 on KDWI (Channel 9); it first aired in San Francisco Sunday 4 November 1956 on KRON (Channel 4), in Phoenix Thursday 13 November 1956 on KPHO (Channel 5), and in Los Angeles Sunday 23 December 1956 on KTLA (Channel 5). 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 still in B&W. Most viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. In Honolulu it enjoyed its first colorcast Thursday 5 September 1957 on KHVH (Channel 13); in Philadelphia it was first offered a colorcast presentation Wednesday 27 January 1960. See more
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."

Vi, isn't he wonderful?
Yeah, cutest little lease-breaker I ever saw. Where's his mother?
She's downstairs, she wasn't sure how you'd take this.
Yeah I'll bet.
