NOTES

powered by AFI

The working title of this film was Morgan's Folly. The film was never released theatrically in the United States and not submitted for copyright, although there is a copyright statement on the opening title card. Most of the action within the film consists of three complete M-G-M shorts: Musical Masterpieces, @LP277; April 25, 1946; Our Old Car, part of John Nesbit's Passing Parade series, @LP305; May 6, 1946; and, Badminton, part of the Pete Smith Specialty series, @LP13622; October 25, 1945. Additional musical numbers featuring Eleanor Powell, Virginia O'Brien, Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra, and The King Sisters were taken from numbers shot, but not used for the 1942 M-G-M picture Ship Ahoy (see below). According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, The Great Morgan marked the first screen appearance of M-G-M recording director Douglas Shearer. The film May also have marked the only feature film appearance of costume designer Irene and art director Cedric Gibbons.
