Facts about

The role of Bo Decker was intended for Fess Parker, but Parker was under contract to Walt Disney at the time, who wouldn't release him. Parker also didn't get the role eventually played by Jeffrey Hunter in The Searchers for the same reason and it was many years before he was even aware of it.
Marilyn Monroe played Cherie, a role that Kim Stanley originated on Broadway. Two years later, Stanley played a thinly-veiled version of Monroe in the The Goddess.
Green top with black-lace like overlay Marilyn Monroe wears (pictured on US DVD cover) had originally been worn by Susan Hayward several years earlier in same studio's With a Song in My Heart.
