This was the first film in which Judy Garland had her name billed before the title, which showed her growing importance and stature at MGM.
Judy Garland is said to have been at the height of her drug addiction throughout filming, resulting in her weight changes, mood-swings, and unexplained illnesses. It was due to this behaviour that MGM fired her after filming completed.
