At one point in the film, Charlie & Julie watch a bit of an old movie on TV, a scene from Easy to Love (1953) with Esther Williams and John Bromfield, filmed in Technicolor, but broadcast in B&W, as most of them were at that time; however, MGM did not release that particular title to TV until nearly a decade later; the MGM film library which was finally released to television in the Fall of 1956, a year after The Tender Trap was released, did not include any titles filmed after 1948.

Though it does make women look as if each has an alterior motive which is to trap a guy into marriage, it is a fun loving film that has alot of potential and with Frank in it, it makes it a classic. Though the supporting cast is wonderful we musn't forget Debbie Reynolds. Her part as a young naive girl is unforgettable and was a large step in the right direction..
