Facts about

The two lesser known Rat Packers, Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford, don't appear in this film. They are "replaced" essentially by Bing Crosby and Peter Falk.
Making this film should have been fun. Instead, by more than one account, it was a waking nightmare for all involved. John F. Kennedy was assassinated soon after filming started, casting a pall over the entire set. Not long after that, Frank Sinatra Jr. was kidnapped from his dressing room at Lake Tahoe, Nevada (Upon payment of a large ransom, he was released, unharmed, a few days later). Victor Buono, who played Deputy Sherrif Alvin Potts, later observed that it was a minor miracle that filming was completed at all.
Peter Lawford was supposed to be in this film, but due to the John F. Kennedy/Frank Sinatra falling out, Lawford - Kennedy's brother-in-law - took the brunt of the wrath from the "Chairman of the Board".
