  • The name of Groucho's character, "S. Quentin Quayle", caused a stir when the film was first released due to the subtle but clear joke: the use of the term "San Quentin quayle", which means "jail bait".
  • The film opens with Horace Greely's famous quotation: "Go West, Young Man, go west."
  • In Groucho's first solo appearance in a film (without his brothers) he puts on the old mustache and tails again and performs a number called "Go West, Young Man."
