Right before the "Once in a Blue Moon" number, there is a long shot of Stephen holding Doris under the moon. His lips are moving in this brief shot as if he's singing to her, but there is no vocal on the soundtrack. See more »

A production number filmed for this movie was cut from the released print; Ethel Merman does sing a bit of it near the end. See more »
I loved it! Bing and Carole were great together. The whole cast was terrific! George and Gracie kinda stole the show, but that just proves how funny they are. One of my favorite scenes is when Bing Crosby is singing "May I" to Carole Lomabard. She pretends to dislike him, but smiles at him when he's not looking , but stops when he looks at her. The whole time she's trying to keep up with it, but starts to smile when he looks at her and frown when he turns away. It's difficult to describe, but when you see the movie you'll understand. Some of the plot doesn't make much sense, and is just plain silly at times, but that just makes it the screwball that it is. The bear seems to be very well trained, it's not suppose to be cruel, though you can't help but be worried, and when it's a guy in a suit, it's funny and suppose to look unreal. My opinion may be great because I'm such a huge fan of Carole, but even if you have no idea who she is, watch it anyways.
