Facts about

"The Hedda Hopper Show - This Is Hollywood" broadcast a 30-minute CBS Radio adaptation of the movie on January 18, 1947 with Ginger Rogers reprising her film role.
The night before shooting was to start, a game of hide-and-seek was held during a party. Primula Niven (wife of David Niven) opened a door she thought led to a closet and fell down a set of stairs to her death.
Of all the post-Fred Astaire movies of Ginger Rogers to this point, this historical drama was her least successful both financially and critically. According to the June 23, 1947 edition of TIME magazine the picture had "trouble getting into some first-run theaters." Moreover, film reviewers largely felt that Ginger had been miscast.
