Facts about

Twentieth Century-Fox had wanted either James Cagney or Fred Astaire to play the role of song-and-dance man Frank Burt. After negotiations with Mr. Astaire fell through, Betty Grable requested John Payne, who already had appeared with her in Tin Pan Alley, Footlight Serenade, Springtime in the Rockies and The Dolly Sisters.
