Facts about

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.
The original title was apparently "Romance on the High C's".
This was Doris Day's first ever acting role, and she was extremely naive about how films were made. She wrote in her autobiography that the first scenes to be filmed would be aboard the cruise ship, and the first day she walked onto the sound stage and asked when they would be leaving for the boat? The crew broke up laughing.
