The Opposite Sex (1956) Poster

Trivia

When Kay (June Allyson) slaps Crystal (Dame Joan Collins), June was told Joan would pull back before impact, and Joan was told June would not strike her. The connection was made and we see a slap so hard, Joan's earrings fly off of her ears. Joan would not speak to June for several days believing it was intentional.

Although the second Mrs. Dick Powell (Joan Blondell) was no fan of the third Mrs. Powell (June Allyson), she asked her daughter (and Allyson's stepdaughter) Ellen Powell to speak to Allyson about a role in this movie. It was Blondell's return to movies after a five-year absence, and despite the rather difficult history involving the two Mrs. Powells, all went reasonably smoothly.

Remake of the non-musical movie The Women (1939) starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, and Rosalind Russell. Crawford actually commented on this remake by saying, "It's ridiculous. Norma and I might not ever have been bosom buddies, but we towered compared to those pygmies in the remake."

On the one-sheet poster, Joan Collins' backside was also used for the 4 other actresses, June Allyson, Ann Sheridan, Dolores Gray, and Ann Miller, whose heads were rather haphazardly attached afterwards. June Allyson's image suffers the most from this unfortunate procedure by the re-touching department. Allyson's image suffers the most from this unfortunate procedure.
