Facts about

Eddie Foy Jr. ran as fast as he could in the scene in which he was slightly undressed, because it was cold and Mexican women and children were taunting him.
In interviews during his presidency, Ronald Reagan called this movie, "the worst picture I ever made" and also said, "never has an egg of such dimensions been laid". He recalled that a movie usher who had seen the film once told him, "You should be ashamed." However, the film did have one positive effect for Reagan. After seeing the movie, a young man named Jerry Parr was inspired to enter the Secret Service. On March 30, 1981, Parr was the agent who quickly pushed Ronald Reagan into his limousine when John W. Hinckley Jr. fired six shots at the President outside the Washington D.C. Hilton. Parr's quick reaction, and his decision to take the wounded Reagan immediately to George Washington University Hospital, were credited with saving the President's life.
