- The MGM Records soundtrack album made from this film, originally released on a 78-RPM album set, was the first soundtrack album ever made from a live-action film musical. Previously the only movie musical soundtracks released on records were those of the Walt Disney animated films. (The authentic soundtrack album of MGM's Wizard of Oz, The (1939), with the film cast, was not released until 1956.)
- This film made national headlines in 1973 when it was announced that MGM had neglected to renew the copyright on this film, resulting in the film entering public domain. Because of the film being public domain, inferior VHS copies appeared a few years later when video became popular.
- 'Judy Garland' , who played a minor role, was pregnant with her first daughter, Liza Minnelli.
