Bella and Samuel Spewack received the 1936 Roi Cooper Megrue Award for their play Boy Meets Girl. The play was revived on June 22, 1943. Contemporary reviews agreed that censorship requirements made the satire in the movie less successful than in the stage version, specifically citing the character of Susie, who was unwed in the play. According to Hollywood Reporter, Marion Davies was considered for the lead, but modern sources say that William Randolph Hearst thought the script was too racy for the image he felt she should maintain.
