Facts about

According to her 1975 autobiography, "Doris Day: Her Own Story" (co-written with A.E. Hotchner), Miss Day attended a show-biz party the night before she planned to leave for New York City. Also at the gathering was lyric writer Sammy Cahn who, taking Doris aside, explained that she would be the right match for the Cahn-Jule Styne score of this upcoming film. When, at Mr. Cahn's urging, Doris sang "Embraceable You" (music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin) for the party crowd, she was heard by director Michael Curtiz, who then asked her to test for the role of Georgia Garrett.
In her autobiography, Doris Day recalled that in her screen-test song, "A Rainy Night in Rio" (music, by Arthur Schwartz, lyrics by Leo Robin), director Michael Curtiz at first instructed her to move around in the frenzied film style of Betty Hutton. Doris then requested to perform the number in her natural, more sedate manner.
"It's Magic" was the release title in Great Britain, due to the British popularity of the film's Oscar-nominated song (music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Sammy Cahn).
