Joe Ellis: Come on! hit 'em like the earthquake!
Eric Stanton: When I feel like it. I made it clear to you when I took this job. You can't tie me down. Cramps my style. I always work best when a certain feeling comes over me, and right now I haven't got it.

Facts about

Alice Faye, married to Phil Harris and raising two young daughters, then tiring after nearly a dozen years of hectic moving-making, and disappointed with the outcome of this release, chose to leave Twentieth Century-Fox before her contract expired. Eventually, she would return to work at the studio once, playing the mother role in a bland filming of Rodgers and Hammerstein's State Fair. Originally, Miss Faye had turned down the band-singer part in the more satisfying 1945 version.
Alice Faye's rendition of "Slowly" (music by David Raksin, lyrics by Kermit Goell) is part of a deleted scene in which she is being driven to the beach by Dana Andrews. In the release print, the ballad is sung off screen by the "radio voice" of Dick Haymes, as waitress Linda Darnell works behind the counter. Dick's 1945 Decca recording is featured on a 2003 CD box set from the British label Jasmine, entitled "The Golden Years of Dick Haymes."
Dana Andrews did the commentary on the trailer.
