Facts about

The instrumental version of "Something's Gotta Give" by Ray Anthony & His Orchestra was originally in Daddy Long Legs which starred Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron. When the digital restoration and reconstruction was undertaken for the unfinished film, 20th Century-Fox inadvertently mixed in Anthony's instrumental version of the song for Marilyn's famous 'swimming pool' sequence at no cost since Fox also produced the Astaire vehicle. A different instrumental background - originally to be for the film - can be heard in an alternate take of the swimming pool scene that appeared on a Marilyn Monroe CD compilation issued by Hollywood Soundstage; this music was eventually used later on in the film as Monroe's character is encountered by Phil Silvers as she rests nude on the edge of the pool.
Dean Martin reportedly threatened to walk off the set when he heard Marilyn Monroe was out, so she was rehired.
This material eventually became Move Over, Darling with Doris Day and James Garner replacing Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin. Many of the sets constructed for this version were used for that one.
