Facts about

Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant improvised many of their scenes throughout filming, and a number of lines that made it to the final cut of the film came from the actors' improvisation.
Deborah Kerr plays Terry McKay, previously played by Irene Dunne in Love Affair, of which this film is a remake - both were directed by Leo McCarey. The year before this film was made, Kerr played Anna Leonowens in The King and I, also a role that had previously been played by Irene Dunne in the black-and-white classic Anna and the King of Siam. "The King and I" is a musical based on the same book.
Ingrid Bergman was the first choice to play Terry McKay.
