Facts about

Judy Cornwell was offered a key role.
During the cricket match in the alley, there is a line "If that was a googly, I'm a Chinaman". In cricket, a "googly" is type of delivery bowled by right-handed leg-spinner, where the ball moves into the batsman rather than away from him. It is also called a "wrong'un". (Note: left-handed spin bowlers are sometimes called "chinaman" bowlers.)
The origins of this project date back to 1955, as a musical/drama vehicle produced by Warner Brothers for Judy Garland, and as a follow-up to her triumph in A Star Is Born. After Garland lost the Academy Award for Best Actress that year, all future projects between Transcona Productions (the production company set up by Garland and her husband Sidney Luft) were abandoned and her 3 picture contract canceled.
