Certain elements of the Doris Day character's "back story" were "lifted" from Day's offscreen life at the time. Before being discovered by Warner stalwart Michael Curtiz and cast in her screen debut Romance on the High Seas, Day had been a popular radio singer and recording artist. The subplot of her heartbreak at being separated from her young son in this film also reflected Day's true life experience: While pursuing her career as a big band singer, Day had to park her son Terry with his grandmother and rarely saw her child face-to-face. One of her first decisions after signing a seven year contract with Warners was to move both her son and mother to Burbank and establish a "real home" for her family. See more
