This was one of the first films that started making people think Marilyn was actually a "dumb blonde" but people forget she was just playing a character. The apartment building used for the filming was located in Sutton Place, NYC. The location of the building began her love for Sutton Place. 3 years later she moved to Sutton Place with future husband, Arthur Miller.
