Film debut of Charles Nelson Reilly. He had to introduce a musical act and couldn't get his one line right. He was so funny trying so hard to get the take done that people from all over the lot were arriving to see him flubbing his dialogue. It took over 60 takes to finally get the shot. See more »

Other reviewers have discussed the music in detail. I would only like to say that there is great swing dancing in this movie. Especially the couple in the center of the screen. Some of their moves were astounding. From today's viewpoint it is ironic that some of the best examples of swing dancing on film is in these late 1950's rock in roll movies. At that time, however, many people thought rock was a new version of swing. About four years later rock went off in another direction, eliminating the saxophone and partner dancing. This, of course, eventually led to a rebellion against rock from 1995 to the present by many people who like to dance with a partner.
