  • Director S. Sylvan Simon had terrible difficulty filming scenes with W.C. Fields due to his alcoholism. After lunch hour he was often nowhere to be found. This problem was solved by luring Fields into his truck early in the day and removing the ladder. Fields would often rant and complain before eventually asleep.
  • 'Jane Powell' and W.C. Fields have one scene together, during which he ad-libbed all of his lines.
