Foster commented, "I was in a very down period. I didn't like the list of the pictures they wanted me to do. I said no."
  3. ^ New York Times review 11 October 1945 "In producing this comedy-romance Universal frequently interrupts the story with night-club floor-show sequences which would be even duller than they are if Ginny Simms were not around, and in good voice, to sing "Cuddle Up a Little Closer" and "In Love With Love."
