Quotes from

Molly Donahue: Fit Lew Harris into this picture, will you?
Vicky Hoffman: Lew did everything for me. Maybe he did have some ideas, that doesn't mean I always agreed with them. There was never anyone for me but Tim.


Molly Donahue: You start worrying about your kids the day they're born, and you never stop. Even after they bury you, I bet you never stop worrying.

Tim Donahue: Ma!

Facts about

Marilyn Monroe was promised the lead role in The Seven Year Itch if she appeared in this film to boost its box-office potential. The role of Vicky was written especially for this purpose, and songs such as "Heatwave", originally intended for Ethel Merman, were assigned to her.
Donald O'Connor had separated from his wife of ten years. She and Dan Dailey, who played O'Connor's father, were dating during the shooting of the film. After filming wrapped, the O'Connors divorced and shortly thereafter Gwen Carter and Dan Dailey married.
"Anything You Can Do" (music and lyrics by Irving Berlin), sung by Ethel Merman and Dan Dailey, was cut from this movie. The song as filmed still exists. In 1946, Miss Merman and Ray Middleton had introduced this song in the Broadway musical "Annie Get Your Gun", and it also appears in the film adaptation Annie Get Your Gun starring Betty Hutton and Howard Keel.
