The onscreen credits incorrectly spell actor and newspaper columnist Harry Levette's name "Lavette." Actor Vernon McCalla's surname is misspelled "McCella." The Motion Picture Herald review notes that this film was the second of seven films planned for production by Jed Buell. Lucky Ghost is a follow-up to the 1940 Buell film Mr. Washington Goes to Town, which also starred Mantan Moreland and F. H. Miller and featured the characters "Brutus Blake" and "Blackstone." (See AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.2929.) Lucky Ghost was originally titled Lady Luck. Material contained in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library indicates that the film underwent a title change in late 1941 or early 1942. The reason for the change in title is not noted in the records.
