This film marked the motion picture debut of Joe Penner and Goo-Goo. Joe Penner was a popular radio performer. According to the film's pressbook, Hal Raynor assisted as Joe Penner's "gag-man." Raynor, an Episcopalian rector, was also known as Reverend Harry Rubel Scott. Penner's stand-in, Freddy Welch, was relieved of duty by Penner in one scene in which he had to stand in a lake, because Welch was wearing a brand-new pair of pants. Clara Lou Sheridan filled in when Lyda Roberti fell ill. Goo-Goo the duck had a mechanical stand-in due to the real duck's reported stage fright. A contemporary advertisement listed Richard Arlen and Ida Lupino as members of the cast, but their participation in the final film is doubtful.
