The print viewed was a reissued, slightly edited combination of Taxi, Mister and another featurette from the "The McGuerin Family" series called The McGuerins from Brooklyn. The reissue was entitled Two Mugs from Brooklyn, and contained partial credits from each film. The above cast credits were taken from the Variety review of Taxi, Mister. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, some scenes in Taxi, Mister were shot at the Veteran's Administration in Sawtelle, CA. Another Hollywood Reporter item states that the burlesque routine that Grace Bradley's character dances to bewitch William Bendix's character in this film had originally been banned from the 1934 film Come On Marines. For further information on "The McGuerin Family" series, consult the Series Index, and see the entry above for Brooklyn Orchid. Taxi, Mister was also one of Hal Roach's "streamlined features," a series of short comedies intended to fill the second half of a double bill. The first streamlined feature was Tanks a Million.
