Facts about

Five songs were dropped from the release print: "Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer" (music by Jimmy McHugh, lyrics by Harold Adamson), sung with a bit of comedy by Martha Raye; the slightly risqué "SNAFU" (music by McHugh, lyrics by Adamson), sung and danced by Martha Raye, Carole Landis and Mitzi Mayfair; "It's the Old Army Game" (music by McHugh, lyrics by Adamson), performed by Kay Francis (reciting rather than singing while supposedly playing the piano), plus Raye, Landis and Mayfair; "Silent Night" (music by Franz Gruber, lyrics by 'Josef Mohr'); sung by Martha Raye; and "Mamae Yo Quero" (music by Vicente Paiva, Portuguese lyrics by Jararaca), sung and danced by Carmen Miranda. All five songs as filmed still exist.
The Harold Adamson lyrics for the song "Ohio" were discarded. Mitzi Mayfair danced to Jimmy McHugh's melody played by Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra. On the Decca recording by Mr. Dorsey, the lyrics were restored for his singer Gladys Tell.
Guest star Betty Grable's appearance was her last in a black-and-white feature film, not counting her showing up later that year in Take It or Leave It, which recycled "The Sheik of Araby" footage with Betty, Alice Faye and Billy Gilbert originally from Tin Pan Alley.
