Oscar Farrar: Who said anything about Brooklyn? It's now called the Caribbean Rhapsody. I'm very adaptable.
Georgia Garrett: Have you finished it yet?
Oscar Farrar: I don't want to finish it. People will like it. They'll make a big fuss over me, I'll have no time for myself, I'll be the toast of the town, and then what happens to that sweet boy you and I both love?
Georgia Garrett: Aren't you being modest? I have confidence in you, Oscar.
Oscar Farrar: Everybody has confidence in me. That's my trouble. In high school I was voted the boy most likely to succeed. In college they said I had a brilliant future.

Facts about

For the part of Georgia Garrett, Warner Bros. inquired about borrowing Judy Garland from MGM, but Metro's policy at the time was not to lend Miss Garland to other studios. Mary Martin also had been in the running to play Georgia. Warners then acquired Betty Hutton in a loan-out deal with Paramount, but before filming started, Miss Hutton had to bow out because of her pregnancy.
The original title was apparently "Romance on the High C's".
A jaunty solo by Doris Day from the Jule Styne-Sammy Cahn film score, "I'm in Love," was turned into a duet by Miss Day and her hit-making disc partner, Buddy Clark, on the Columbia Records single. "Put 'Em in a Box, Tie 'Em With a Ribbon (And Throw' Em in the Deep Blue Sea)," another sprightly movie number, teamed Doris with The Page Cavanaugh Trio. On Columbia's 78, Miss Day sang with a full orchestra under the baton of George Siravo.
