Studio press materials report that Robert Carson's Cosmopolitan magazine story Third Girl from the Right, which was also the working title of the film, was originally bought as a vehicle for Lucille Ball. Later writer Edward Buzzell bought the rights and sold a screenplay based on the story to Universal. According to an August 1954 Hollywood Reporter "Rambling Reporter" item, Colleen Miller and Cathy Case were considered to play chorus girls in the film. In November 1954, another "Rambling Reporter" article stated that Lita Baron, Rory Calhoun's then wife, exited a role in the film because she did not have enough scenes with her husband.
