This biopic of lyricist Gus Kahn is told from the point of view of his widow Grace who was still alive at the time of filming. Kahn himself had died 10 years earlier.
Star Danny Thomas and director Michael Curtiz would reteam the following year for another successful musical, the remake of The Jazz Singer (1952).
Gus Kahn is now generally recognized as one of the leading lyricists of the golden age of musicals. However, this recognition took its time coming. He wasn't inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame until 1970, some 29 years after his death.
One of Gus Kahn's most popular songs would become the title of one of Doris Day's biggest hit movies four years later - Love Me or Leave Me (1955).
Doris Day would play the wife and widow of another leading personality the following year when she appeared as the spouse of baseball legend Grover Cleveland Alexander in The Winning Team (1952).
