Facts about

In her autobiography, Doris Day recalled that in her screen-test song, "A Rainy Night in Rio" (music, by Arthur Schwartz, lyrics by Leo Robin), director Michael Curtiz at first instructed her to move around in the frenzied film style of Betty Hutton. Doris then requested to perform the number in her natural, more sedate manner.
Doris Day and Jack Carson, who met while making this film, had a brief romance.
A jaunty solo by Doris Day from the Jule Styne-Sammy Cahn film score, "I'm in Love," was turned into a duet by Miss Day and her hit-making disc partner, Buddy Clark, on the Columbia Records single. "Put 'Em in a Box, Tie 'Em With a Ribbon (And Throw' Em in the Deep Blue Sea)," another sprightly movie number, teamed Doris with The Page Cavanaugh Trio. On Columbia's 78, Miss Day sang with a full orchestra under the baton of George Siravo.
