Variety notes that the film was released in two-strip Technicolor, but the viewed print was in black and white. The original Broadway play contained songs by Cole Porter that were not included in the film version, although some were used as background music. William Gaxton, Helen Broderick and Lester Crawford repeated the roles they originated in the Broadway show, which was backed by Warner Bros. Contemporary reviews all make special mention of the final chase scene when Olsen and Johnson are followed by ever increasing numbers of policemen, who alternately get their feet stuck in tar or slide on oil-slicked streets.
