Walking My Baby Back Home is a 1953 American musical comedy film starring Donald O'Connor, Janet Leigh, and Buddy Hackett. This was Hackett's film debut. Excerpts of the film are used in the Columbo episode "Forgotten Lady", in which Leigh plays a middle aged former film star Grace Wheeler who nostalgically watches the film. Donald O'Connor enjoyed working with Janet Leigh. She hadn’t danced in years but was a real trouper. Nine times out of 10 we’d do all those beautiful dance routines on cement, and she got very tired, started falling a lot on her knees. And her knees started to swell three times their normal size. It was very painful. On the screen you can’t tell how she was suffering in that darn thing.
