Facts about

Being Laurel and Hardy's first sound film, it introduced two gags which used sound as a major element and became classics which would be re-used. The first involved Officer Kennedy (Edgar Kennedy) getting his comeuppance from his wife in the room across the hall (heard as a collection of off-screen yells and crashes). The second involved Stan Laurel tripping at the top of the stairs followed by the sound of him supposedly tumbling down the entire flight.
The title itself is a joke of sorts, drawn from the then=popular cliché "Unaccustomed as we are to public speaking..." a wry comment upon on the new talkie technology.
This was Laurel and Hardy's first talkie. Three shorts that were already completed were withheld in order to rush this into release. The three completed shorts were then released with music and sound effects added.
