Of Betty Grable's 29 feature-film appearances from 1940 through 1955, only this movie did not play at the Roxy Theatre in New York City. Instead, this picture opened at the Globe Theatre on June 12, 1953. Note: Miss Grable's How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) had its Manhattan premiere simultaneously at the Roxy and the Globe on November 12, 1953. See more »
Don't forget, I'm a five time widow, and when they died they all left me everything they owned. Rest their souls.
What do you want with me? I'm broke.

Typical 1950's Hollywood production. Costumes are not period, zippers, high heeled pumps and pony tails were not part of the 1850's. The men wear dinner jackets with bow ties and everyone's outfit is sparkling clean and starched, despite the fact that they have been working all day plowing, washing and cleaning. Penciled in eyebrows, eyeliner and lipstick a hundred years too early. Betty Grable still looks like a a pin up girl, and Dale Robertson has a pompadour hair style, also why are they using southern accents in Rome NY? This movie is cute but not Betty Grable's best picture by far. Lovely 1950's period piece in long skirts.
