Playwriter and renowned stripper, Gypsy Rose Lee, was credited onscreen using her real name Louise Hovick. The Hollywood Reporter (6 April 1944) wrote that the producer George Jessel had offered Lee a role in the picture, but she did not appear in the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter (June 1944), Carole Landis would star in the film and Jackie Gleason would perform the “comedy lead”, and yet another news item (July 1945) reported that William Eythe was scheduled to play the “romantic lead”, and that fifteen-year-old singer Hazel Dawn had been included in the cast. However, Dawn’s appearance in the completed picture has not been confirmed. Dennis O’Keefe was borrowed for the film from Edward Small’s company. Doll Face was the screen debuts of Martha Stewart and Lex Barker.
