The Poet (Howard Keel) and Lalume (Dolores Gray) sing about "Rahadlakum", which is most likely a bastardization of "rahat loukoum". The line in the song, "'tis sweet with the meat of the lychee nut / combined with a kumquat rind", is a description of Turkish Delight, a confectionery sweet that at times include nuts, and can be flavored with the zest of lemon rind.

I first saw this movie when I was 10 years old with my parents. I fell in love with Ann Blyth and wanted to grow up and marry her someday. Seeing her in the Student Prince also helped. This was a great musical of the time. Younger people, when seeing this movie today (1999) must take into consideration that we had different morality then. Men,as well as women,liked movies for the romance . We were not looking for cheap sex scenes or showing a lot of skin. Ahhh.., the butterflies in the stomach and heart palpitations of being in love. Jane Powell was another heart throb of the time. See her movies also. I only wished I could have gown up and looked like and sang like Howard Keel.
