Facts about

Bing Crosby, Bob Hope's long-term co-star and rival in the Road movies, plays an executioner who is livid when he doesn't get to execute Hope's character. Hope fires back saying, "He'll do any kind of role" (at the time, Crosby was a top star - but here he was doing a one-scene cameo.)
Bob Hope wanted Bing Crosby's cameo as Harry so much that he paid him $5,000 to appear. The sum was later donated to a charity.
"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on October 13, 1947 with Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour reprising their film roles.
