Facts about

Washington Irving, author of "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", was a prominent character in the stage version of this musical, where he was played by Ray Middleton; however, he was completely omitted from the film version.
Although most of the stage musical's songs were omitted from the film, "September Song" did make it into the film, and the original lyrics of the song (referring to Peter Stuyvesant's wooden leg) were used, rather than the more familiar ones sung by most popular and nightclub singers.
