Eddie Cantor, as Joe the bus driver, tells Joan Leslie that he and his friends all live together in a place called "Gower Gulch". In reality "Gower Gulch" was the area near Gower St. and Hollywood Blvdn where many low-budget production companies and independent producers had their offices. It was so named because most of the films they made were westerns--which were cheaper to make than any other genre--and many cowboy actors and extras hung out in the area looking for work.
"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on September 27, 1943 with Eddie Cantor, Dinah Shore and Dennis Morgan reprising their film roles.
