Facts about

"You Won't Forget Me" (music by Fred Spielman, lyrics by Kermit Goell), sung by Lena Horne, was cut from the movie. For years, Lena's prerecording was missing until rediscovered and then issued on the 1996 Rhino DC box set, "That's Entertainment!" Joan Crawford (dubbed by India Adams) later performed the number in Torch Song.
"Warm Hands, Cold Heart" (music and lyrics by Al Rinker and Floyd Huddleston), sung by Mel Tormé, was deleted from this film, leaving The Velvet Fog tuneless and with only a bit of dialogue. The prerecording can be heard on the Rhino CD, "Mel Tormé in Hollywood."
Already a standard, Cole Porter's "You Do Something to Me," sung by Lena Horne, was dropped from the film.
