Goofs

During the Cosmo Cosmetics number, all of the monitors in the television control room are in color. Expensive color sets would never have been used in a real TV control room, and in fact weren't even available in 1950. See more »

Some lines seem risque at the time
10 February 2004 | by blind3233See all my reviews

Can't remember much about the movie, except my parents were a little disgusted at some of the dialogue. One that stands out: Grable and Dailey, a married couple, announced she was pregnant.

At a party (or something)where they announced the news, somebody said something like, "Well, we had better go because they probably want to be alone."

To which David Wayne, in whatever role he was playing, said, "Listen, if what these two kids said is true, they've been alone."

That was one pretty risque line for 1950. Would that dialogue today were as tame as that.
