Facts about

Fourteen-year-old Judy Garland made her feature-film debut as the young hillbilly Sairy Dodd. This Twentieth Century-Fox picture was Judy's one loan-out during her 15 years with MGM (1935-1950).
In a case of odd future coincidence, Lynn Bari, who appears in the uncredited role of a football game spectator, would marry Sid Luft as her second husband in 1943. Nine years later Judy Garland, who played Sairy Dodd, would marry the very same Sid Luft as her third husband in 1952.
"It's Love I'm After" (music by Lew Pollack, lyrics by Sidney D. Mitchell), a duet by Betty Grable and Johnny Downs, was cut from the movie, so that only Judy Garland's rendition is heard in the released film. Both versions are contained on an LP from Curtain Calls, simply called "Betty Grable."
