Van Johnson and Cyd Charisse were the first choices for the leads, but Cyd Charisse was pregnant at the time. A new screenplay was then written for Esther Williams to star in.
The melody to the song "The House Of Singing Bamboo" was actually written in 1945 by 'Harry Warren' for the MGM picture The Harvey Girls, which starred Judy Garland. The song was called "Hayride" and it originally had lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The song was cut from the picture.
