Trivia

The Hollywood sign in the opening shot is incorrectly shown as red neon. The HOLLYWOOD sign has always been white letters since it was originally erected in 1923 when it read HOLLYWOODLAND and even when reduced to just HOLLYWOOD in 1949. See more »

Doris Day Turned This One Down
29 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Jack Warner handed this script to Doris Day, but she begged out. It was too much like the other films she had made at Warners (she made "Lullaby of Broadway" that same year and "Tea For Two" right before that). Virgina Mayo, who was free, loved doing musicals, so she stepped in and Dennis Morgan's name went up one step. Doris, by this time was extremely popular, so she would have gotten billing over Morgan.

This was colorful (I saw it once) and Mayo looked incredible, as usual.

Day, after "Calamity Jane" got "picky" about parts. She also turned down "The Helen Morgan Story" with Paul Newman, "The Jazz Singer" with Danny Thomas and WB had planned "Miss America" for Doris and Virginia, a musical.
