NOTES

powered by AFI

This film was the first produced under the Allied Artists brand. Allied Artists, which was formed in November 1946, was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Monogram Pictures Corp. and initially the producing arm for Monogram's high-budget pictures. In September 1952, Monogram announced that henceforth it would produce only films bearing the Allied Artists name.
       Portions of this film were shot at Newport News, VA. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, footage of the first post-war Easter parade on New York City's Fifth Avenue, on April 21, 1946, was shot for the film. To promote the picture, Monogram sponsored a parade in Manhattan with New York's Fifth Avenue Merchants Association, as well as a six-week cross-country bus tour, which ended in Los Angeles. Hollywood Reporter also notes that the film's songs were to be published by Chappell and Co. and released in time for the picture's Easter week opening. Harry Revel's "That's What Christmas Means to Me" became a minor Christmas standard. Herbert Clyde Lewis and Frederick Stephani were nominated for an Academy Award for Writing (Original Story) for the film. Don DeFore and Charlie Ruggles reprised their roles in a May 19, 1947 Lux Radio Theatre broadcast, co-starring Victor Moore.
