Facts about

Doris Day wrote that Frank Sinatra disliked Day's husband/manager Martin Melcher so much that he threatened to walk off this film unless Melcher was banned from the Warner Brothers lot during production. Jack L. Warner issued this order to all studio security guards so that production would not be shut down.
While making this film, Frank Sinatra took an almost immediate dislike to Doris Day's husband, Martin Melcher, thought that Melcher was "using" her to get ahead in the movie business and tried to convince Day of that fact. When Day refused to listen to Sinatra's advice, he had Melcher banned from the set. After Melcher's death in 1968, it was discovered that he had squandered all the money Day had earned during her 20-year film career.
This was the last film Doris Day made as an exclusive contract player at Warner Brothers. It was co-produced by Warner Brothers and Arwin Productions, the company formed by Day and her manager/husband Martin Melcher. This was the first film for Arwin Productions.
