Louis Armstrong appeared with his band in the film. Reviews list Tom Rickets in the role of Mr. Briggs, while the CBCS credits Richard Carle. The title song was nominated for a 1936 Academy Award for Best Song. Katharine Leslie Moore's novel was also the inspiration for a 1981 film, directed by Herbert Ross and starring Steve Martin in the lead role. The 1981 film was also based on a six-part BBC television production written by Dennis Potter and starring Bob Hoskins.
