One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its initial television presentation took place in Omaha Sunday 25 January 1959 on KETV (Channel 7), followed by Phoenix 15 February 1959 on KVAR (Channel 12), by Chicago 3 May 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2), and by Seattle 25 Jly 1959 on KIRO (Channel 7). In Detroit it was shown in 3 parts, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 14-15-16 October 1959 on WJBK (Channel 2), followed by Asheville 6 November 1959 on WLOS (Channel 13), by Grand Rapids 2 December 1959 on WOOD (Channel 8), and by Minneapolis 14 December 1959 on WTCN (Channel 11). In Los Angeles it was not shown until Friday 2 December 1960 on KNXT (Channel 2). At this time, color broadcasting was still in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later; more recently, on cable TV, a beautifully restored print has enjoyed occasional outings on Turner Classic Movies.

Performed by Betty Hutton, this film features the standard "Row, Row, Row"(1912), from the appropriately titled Broadway Revue "Hanky Panky", Music by James V. Monaco.Lyrics by William Jerome. It is, a classic example of lyrics with a dual meaning, about a couple 'making out" while rowing. "They would drop both their oars, take a few more encores and then they'd row, row, row". Obviously, not to be confused with the children's song "Row Row Row Your Boat Gently Down The Stream".
