When Young at Heart was released, the conductor Ray Heindorf was not given credit, because of the new ruling at the time that stated that he had to be credited as a "Music Supervisor and conducted by" policy , which he disliked. This is one of the Warner musicals that bears no credit to any composer or conductor.


Songs from the soundtrack were released as an album by Frank Sinatra and Doris Day, also titled Young at Heart. The album peaked at #11 on Billboard while the single reached #2 and was considered as Sinatra's comeback single after several years away from the top of the pop singles chart. So popular was the song "Young at Heart" that the film was also titled Young at Heart, having had no title until the song's success. The song's popularity led to its being used not only for the title , but also for music over the opening and closing credits.

Young at Heart was released on January 1- 1955.
