  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Quote from TIME Magazine: "Like a cake in the oven," she tells him, "you open the door too soon, you ruin it." In the end, though, Iris bravely chucked the cad when she realized he was not returning her love, only her kisses, and, with what the script called "a fine, quiet steadiness," was called upon to sigh courageously: "I am born again." Though Iris was the kind of frothy pink lady that TV shakes up every day, Margaret gave it the sort of warm, simple-blonde-and-blue-eyed glow that the headier highballs of TV drama often lack.

    • This was producer Albert McCleery's fourth attempt to present Miss Truman in a Matinee Theater production. On three previous occasions something had prevented her appearance. The third time came in May of 1956 when she was to star in "Autumn Crocus" but a throat infection and upcoming wedding forced her to cancel out of the role.

    • Margaret was credited as Margaret Truman Daniel.
