A 1958 film version, starring Tab Hunter, was produced by WarnerBros. It varies slightly from the original plot but kept original choreographer BobFosse and most of the original cast, including Gwen Verdon as Lola, Ray Walston as Applegate and Shannon Bolin as Meg.

* CutSong: several, as usual. A few were used in the 1994 revival



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Besides being rooted in 50s baseball culture, the Senators left Washington after the 1960 season to become the Minnesota Twins. A new franchise named the Washington Senators replaced them in 1961. The new team continued the losing tradition, and eventually moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area as the Texas Rangers in 1971.

* GeorgeWashingtonSleptHere: It mentions this in Lola's song "A Little Brains--A Little Talent," in a joke that had to be {{Bowdlerise}}d out of the film version:
-->You've seen the sign that says George Washington once slept here,\\
Well tho' nobody spied him\\
Guess who was beside him?

* DevilInDisguise: Applegate. Referencing, of course, ''[[HowDoYouLikeThemApples that particular apple]]'', the first temptation of man; [[TheVamp Lola]] is one of his newer ones.

* SeductionProofMarriage: Joe manages to resist Lola's best efforts at vamping him and stays as close as he can to the wife who no longer recognizes him after his transformation into a young baseball hero. His fidelity infuriates Applegate, to whom wives are "more trouble than the Methodist Church."
