Facts about

In this film, Zasu Pitts plays Pauline - the same role she played in the now-lost 1930 version.
Though Nanette is portrayed as being a young girl/woman in dress, manner, and other characters' references to her (example: her uncle refers to her as his "little niece" on the phone), Anna Neagle, who plays Nanette, was somewhere around 36 years old during the making of this film.
In this version, young Eve Arden plays the character of Winnie, but in the 1950 Doris Day remake "Tea For Two", she plays Pauline.
