Facts about

Disembarking from the ship, Bing Crosby tells sinister Gale Sondegaard "I'll listen for you on Inner Sanctum". Radio's "Inner Sanctum Mysteries" debuted in 1941 and featured gruesome stories and spine-chilling characters.
This film contains the last on-screen singing performance by The Andrews Sisters, who share with Bing Crosby the saucy Latin-swing hit, "You Don't Have to Know the Language" (music by Jimmy Van Heusen, lyrics by Johnny Burke). This number was revived splendidly by Lena Horne on two RCA Victor albums: "Songs by Burke and Van Heusen" (released in 1959), and "Lena at the Sands" (recorded live in Las Vegas, November 3-5, 1960).
In the meat freezer scene there is a large side of meat labeled "Crosby Grade A Stables." Bing Crosby owned a stable of race horses that famously performed poorly.
