Facts about

"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on October 5, 1941 with James Cagney, Olivia de Havilland and Jack Carson reprising their film roles.
Ann Sheridan was originally cast as Virginia Brush but became involved in an acrimonious salary dispute with Warner Brothers. The studio borrowed Rita Hayworth from Columbia, whose career was foundering with clinkers like Blondie on a Budget, and "The Strawberry Blonde" became a big boost to her career. Jack L. Warner liked her work so much that he immediately used her again in another romantic comedy, Affectionately Yours.
Previously filmed at One Sunday Afternoon with Gary Cooper and Fay Wray. Later filmed again as One Sunday Afternoon with Dennis Morgan, Janis Paige and Don DeFore.
