Annabel Takes a Tour was the second and final film to use Charles Hoffman's "Annabel" character. Many of the contributors on this production also worked on the first "Annabel" film, The Affairs of Annabel ( listing). Hollywood Reporter production charts add Jack Arnold, Cecil Kellaway, William Corson and Rita Gould to the cast, but their participation in the final film has not been confirmed. According to modern sources, RKO planned to produce more "Annabel" movies, but were inhibited from doing so because Jack Oakie wanted $50,000 for his acting services per film. Modern sources add the following cast members: Wesley Barry (Bellhop), Rafael Storm (Count) and Mary Jo Desmond.
