Facts about

The origins of this project date back to 1955, as a musical/drama vehicle produced by Warner Brothers for Judy Garland, and as a follow-up to her triumph in A Star Is Born. After Garland lost the Academy Award for Best Actress that year, all future projects between Transcona Productions (the production company set up by Garland and her husband Sidney Luft) were abandoned and her 3 picture contract canceled.

Daniel Massey plays Noel Coward, his own godfather.
