George Chandler as "Reporter" is in studio records/casting call lists for this movie, but he was not seen in the viewed print.

The movie ends with big-game hunter Billy Gilbert chasing and shooting at Stan and Ollie. The original ending, nixed by producer Hal Roach, was to show Stan and Ollie's stuffed heads on Gilbert's wall, with a stuffed Ollie telling Stan, "Here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!"

The role of Mrs. Hardy was originally intended for actress Mae Busch.
