Facts about

This is the last of three films that Abbott and Costello made on loan to MGM while under contract to Universal, the other two being Rio Rita and Lost in a Harem. During production on this film, Abbott and Costello returned to the Universal studio on May 13 for re-shoots for their film, The Naughty Nineties.
The film, made by MGM under the studio's loanout deal with Universal for the team's services, is set on the MGM lot, but the studio's major stars - Clark Gable, Lana Turner and Judy Garland - are only mentioned by name and not seen. The actual cameos were confined to second-tier stars Rags Ragland, Preston Foster, Jackie 'Butch' Jenkins and Lucille Ball.
After the disappointing performance of this film at the box office, MGM dropped its option to produce more Bud Abbott & Lou Costello films.
