According to materials contained in the Twentieth Century-Fox Produced Scripts Collection at the UCLA Theater Arts Library, this film was based on the original unpublished story "Life is a Song" by Pamela Harris. In memos from the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, Joseph I. Breen, Director of the MPPDA, ordered that cuts be made in the "Sheik of Araby" number because the dancers' costumes violated production code stipulations regarding semi-nudity. The film won an Academy Award for Best Musical Score.
