Trivia
In the original novel, Gypsy Rose Lee appears as herself and narrator in her own novel, but in the film is renamed "Dixie Daisy".
Share this
It is commonly assumed that Craig Rice, mystery writer from the 1940s and roommate of Gypsy Rose Lee, ghost-wrote "The G-String Murders" for her. However, this has been disputed both on stylistic grounds and on the evidence of manuscripts.
Share this
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.
