Trivia

  • The stunt where the wall falls on Buster Keaton was performed with an actual full-weight wall. Half the crew walked off the set rather than participate in a stunt that would have killed Keaton if he had been slightly off position.
  • The hat that Keaton quickly removes from his head and hands back to the clerk with a frown is Keaton's own trademark porkpie hat.
  • The movie was originally meant to incorporate a large flood as the disaster that hits the town. However, due to a real Mississippi flood and bickering amongst the producers, the flood plot was changed to a "cyclone."
  • This movie was used as a model for Steamboat Willie (1928) The very first appearence of Mickey Mouse.
