Facts about

Reportedly, while shooting the movie, the four stars had become close friends, and William Powell even gave up his old habit of hiding out in his dressing room between scenes so he could join in the fun with the rest of the cast. One of the biggest jokes was a running gag Spencer Tracy played on Myrna Loy, claiming that she had broken his heart with her recent marriage to producer Arthur Hornblow Jr. He even set up an "I Hate Hornblow" table in the studio commissary, reserved for men who claimed to have been jilted by Loy.
Jean Harlow was forced to stay out of the production for ten days due to a severe case of sunburn poisoning.
Rosalind Russell was originally casted for the role Connie Allenbury which was taken over later by Myrna Loy
