According to materials contained in the MPAA/PCA Files at the AMPAS Library, W. C. Fields resisted Joseph I. Breen's directive to excise the line "I know what I'll do, I'll go to India and become a missionary. I hear there's good money in it, too." In the end, Breen won. This was the only film in which Fields and Mae West co-starred. In interviews included in modern sources, West claimed that she had a clause in her contract stating that if Fields came on the set drunk, he was to be removed. She also contended that Fields' contribution to the screenplay amounted to only ten percent. Modern sources add the following to the cast: Jeff Conlon, John Kelly, Walter McGrail, Otto Hoffman, Billy Benedict, Delmar Watson, Chester Gan, George Melford, Lita Chevret, Bud Harris, Bob McKenzie, James Morton, Joe Whitehead, Slim Gant, Lloyd Ingraham, George Billings, Ben Hall, Charles McMurphy, Dick Rush, Hank Bell, Buster Slaven, Danny Jackson, Lane Chandler, Charles Hart, Jack Roper, Alan Bridge, Eddie Hearn and Mark Anthony.
