At one point in the film, Charlie & Julie watch a clip from a movie on TV, a scene from Easy to Love (1953), with Esther Williams and John Bromfield, filmed in Technicolor, but broadcast in B&W, as most of them were at that time; however, MGM did not release that particular title to TV until nearly a decade later; the MGM film library which was finally released to television in the Fall of 1956, a year after The Tender Trap was released, did not include any titles filmed after 1948.
