His wife (Ann Sheridan) has managed to raise their young daughter (Sherry Jackson) and son (Richard Eyers) nicely without his help.

Steve Cochran formed his own independent-producing firm in 1955, called Robert Alexander Productions (his birth name was Robert Alexander Cochran) and he produced COME NEXT SPRING under that banner.
