Originally planned to star Fred Astaire and Judy Garland after their success together in Easter Parade, but when Garland's addiction to over-the-counter drugs spiraled out of control, producer Arthur Freed replaced her with Ginger Rogers.

This was the last film to co-star Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers; also their first in ten years, since The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle; also their only film together in color.
