Facts about

In Janie's dream about marrying the rich Dick Hamilton, the front page of the newspaper announcing the nuptials also declares: "ADOLF HITLER ASSASSINATED ... World War End Expected as Hitler Slain ... Nazi Dictator Struck Down in Moscow".
"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie onSeptember 8, 1941 with Ginger Rogers, Burgess Meredith, George Murphy, and Alan Marshal reprising their film roles.
George Murphy, in his autobiography, said alternate endings were filmed showing Janie marrying each of her three suitors. Murphy claimed that most test audience members wanted Janie to marry his character, Tom, the hard-working automobile salesman, but it was ultimately decided Harry, the free-spirited auto mechanic, would win the lady's hand. Murphy was miffed at his character's loss and compared Harry unfavorably to the "hippies" of the 1960s.
