Box officeEdit

Betty Grable was the number one box-office attraction at the time of this film's release. Her other film that year was Coney Island, and this movie was also an enormous success. Both Coney Island and Sweet Rosie O'Grady were among the top 10 high-grossing films of 1943 and were two of 20th Century Fox's big money makers that year.
