Facts about

Alice Faye agreed to wear a black wig in order to look like Frances Langford and Patsy Kelly, but her home studio, 20th Century Fox, didn't want her blonde screen image changed. Consequently, the idea was only used as a joke in the middle of the scene with the final words by George Raft: "I changed my mind, turn her back and make her a blonde."
Alice Faye recorded a commercial version of the enduring "I Feel a Song Coming On" (music by Jimmy McHugh, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and George Oppenheimer), a tune which Alice shared in the film with Frances Langford and Patsy Kelly. The American Record Company decided not to issue Miss Faye's rendition, and eventually, the masters were disposed of. Another unreleased effort, a remake of Miss Faye's solo in the picture, "Speaking Confidentially" (note: Mr. Oppenheimer received no writing credit here) was spared from junking and now can be heard on two Alice Faye CD collections: "The Complete ARC & Brunswick Sides" from Sony, and "You'll Never Know" from Living Era.
"I'm in the Mood for Love" (music by Jimmy McHugh, lyrics by Dorothy Fields), the silken ballad closely associated with Frances Langford, was sung by her in three Paramount features: this film (in which she introduced the song), Palm Springs (crooned over the opening credits), and People Are Funny (her one tune in a guest appearance).
