One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since.

A similar scene also occurred in an earlier Keystone comedy called Barney Oldfield's Race for a Life.
