Trivia: The song "My Girl Back Home" was cut from the stage version of "South Pacific" just after it opened, but reinstated in the movie. Another outtake from the stage musical, "The Loneliness of Evening," was used (orchestral only) in the movie as background music for the scene in which Nellie reads the letter from Emile (the text of which is a portion of the lyrics of the song). Rodgers and Hammerstein later reused the song in "Cinderella."
