Production Notes:

Live-action black and white film with the five-minute color Puppetoon segment "Romeow and Julicat" by George Pal.

This was Pal's last Puppetoon short; he split up with Paramount afterwards to become an independent producer.

Most existing prints of this film show the Puppetoon sequence in black and white, although it originally was presented in Technicolor.

This film grossed $3.6 million in United States rentals.

The musical number "Tallahassee" was reused in the 1949 Famous Studios Screen Song The Funshine State.
