Facts about

There is a running gag about how awful Mrs. Elvira Kent's singing voice is, as she is repeatedly begged not to sing. Ironically, Janis Paige was in fact a musical star in the movies. She would play the lead in "The Pajama Game" (1954) on Broadway, a role Doris Day would later play in the film, The Pajama Game.
When she saw herself in "dailies" early in this film's production, Doris Day claims she was so embarrassed by her own performance she asked director Michael Curtiz to recommend a drama coach. "No, no!" Curtiz replied, "You're a natural just as you are - if you learn how to act, you'll ruin everything."
Doris Day and Jack Carson, who met while making this film, had a brief romance.
