Facts about

Many of Bob Wallace's more unusual turns of phrase were lifted straight from Bing Crosby's own speech patterns.
Third of three films to feature Bing Crosby singing "White Christmas".
For the song "Gee, I Wish I Was Back In The Army", there is the lyric, "Jolson, Hope And Benny all for free". This is a reference to three wartime entertainers: Al Jolson, Bob Hope and Jack Benny. The original words were "Crosby, Hope and Jolson all for free", but the lyric was changed because with Crosby in the cast the original lyric would break the fourth wall.
