Before filming began, there was said to be a feud between Faye and Grable, although the two actresses had never met. On the first day of production, the actresses got along quickly and became lifelong friends. A similar incident was reported to have happened with Grable and Marilyn Monroe while filming How to Marry a Millionaire. Like the earlier incident, the two actresses got along and became friends.
This film was featured in the M*A*S*H television series episode "Alcoholics Unanimous."
In the opening sequence many old songs can be heard, but once the title card comes on, it is "The Darktown Strutters Ball" that you hear, interwoven with "you say the sweetest things (baby)".
