In order to cash in on Frank Capra's popularity in England, Columbia pictures released this film in London as "A Frank Capra production, produced by Frank Capra." Capra who had never even seen the film was furious. This led to a bitter year-long dispute between the head of Columbia Harry Cohn, and Capra (who sued Columbia for libel). It almost cost Cohn his job and almost resulted in Capra leaving the studio. It was resolved when Cohn relented and promised to buy for Capra, the rights to the play "You Can't Take It with You" for $200,000, and pay him some back salary if he would drop the suit. And Capra did.
"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on January 26, 1941 with Herbert Marshall reprising his film role.
