Trivia & History

Originally to be produced by Herman Levin and Oliver Smith. It took Levin two years to convince writers George S. Kaufman, Morrie Ryskind and Ira Gershwin to give their permission for a revival. Part of the problem was Kaufman's association with producer Max Gordonand the assumption that Gordon would be the first to get the rights for a new production.

Levin and Smith had wanted Kaufman to direct.

In June 1951, Levin and Smith scrapped their revival citing casting difficulties. It later came out the Paul Hartman and Robert Cummings, the sought-after stars, were demanding percentages that were too high for the budget. (Hartman eventually ended up starring in the revival.)
