Facts about

Two scenes featuring Bill Robinson (aka "Bojangles Robinson") were cut from the final version of the film: a solo tap dance performance in black tie by the dancing legend and a duet in beachcomber outfits with a female dancer. Both scenes are included in a DVD released by Fox as part of "Tyrone Power, Matinee Idol."
Hollywood Reporter production charts and news items listed Jean Hersholt in the cast, but he did not appear in the movie.
Among the photos in Monsieur Victor Lobard's office are Warner Baxter, Shirley Temple, Will Rogers, Alice Faye, Rochelle Hudson, Thomas Beck, all Fox players, plus Gloria Swanson, Jack Dempsey, and Charles Chaplin.
