Musical film was an adaptation of the eponymous 1937’s American movie. A remake of the picture was conceived by producer S. Luft in December 1952. He invited G. Cukor to be director. Screenwriter of the film was M. Hart. Songs were written by I. Gershwin & H. Arlen. The music part took R. Heindorf. The main part came to J. Garland – wife of S. Luft. It was planned that her partner would be Cary Grant, but the actor refused to shoot. At the leading roles were considered such candidates as Humphrey Bogart & Frank Sinatra, but in the end, the filmmakers settled on J. Mason. Filming began in October 1953. The last scene was filmed at the end of July 1954 and premiere was held in LA in September 1954.
