Trivia

  • In part for its obvious publicity value, MGM had interest in casting Jackie Cooper's son John in the role his father had created in Champ, The (1931/I) some twenty years before. He was favorably screen-tested and was to be billed as "Jackie Cooper Jr." But his father, well-versed in the pitfalls of child acting, objected to obligating the boy to a contract with the studio. Young Cooper was only six anyway, and his age made the casting a stretch despite the good screen test. Tim Considine, several years older, was selected.
