The film is based on James Hagan's play of the same name, which was produced on Broadway in 1933. This picture was the play's third film adaptation. The first, 1933 adaptation starred Gary Cooper. The second was The Strawberry Blonde (1941) starring James Cagney, Olivia DeHavilland and Rita Hayworth, and also directed by Walsh. While the plot of the third adaptation is the same as the others, it does have a significant number of changes.
- Dennis Morgan as Timothy L. 'Biff' Grimes
- Janis Paige as Virginia Brush
- Don DeFore as Hugo Barnstead

This film is a musical remake of the The Strawberry Blonde (1941), with some updates like an automobile for the first date instead of a horse and carriage. The tunes include "In My Merry Oldsmobile". Dennis Morgan stars in the leading role James Cagney had played in the earlier version, with Don DeFore in the role of the pseudo friend previously played by Jack Carson.
