Facts about

Because the Hays Code had taken effect in the years since this project was first suggested to MGM, the show's "racy" content (the idea of an angel having sex with a mortal) had to be considerably toned down for the film.
Originally planned as a vehicle for Jeanette MacDonald 10 years earlier, but the somewhat racy content put the musical on hold at MGM, until it was a hit on Broadway in 1938.
"Did You Ever Get Stung?" -- a Rodgers and Hart song featured in the 1938-39 Broadway show and performed by Dennis King, Vivienne Segal and Charles Walters -- was revised and retitled "Little Work-a-Day World" for the movie by Bob Wright and Chet Forrest. Ultimately, this number would be cut from the release print. The discarded ditty was among four film songs which Nelson Eddy recorded for the Columbia label on February 1, 1942. (The other cuts were "I Married an Angel," "Spring Is Here" and "I'll Tell the Man in the Street.")
