In its original theatrical release, Adele Jergens was given top billing, though after Marilyn rose to stardom in the early 1950s, the film was reissued to capitalize on her fame and her name was placed before the title, where it remains to this day. Final Draft dated April 7, 1948. Cover and first page partly loose. Covers have some fading and insect damage.
Pages have some notations, but the script is readable throughout. Appears to have been signed by Marilyn's co-star, Adele Jergens.
